This is an intermediate level writing class. Students are guided through the stages of the writing process to write paragraphs that are both meaningful and organised, and include a topic sentence with a controlling idea, supporting details, and a conclusion. They will write multi-draft compositions for a variety of practical and academic purposes. They will also improve their writing by studying model sentences and paragraphs, basic sentence patterns, mechanics, coordinating conjunctions, transitions and vocabulary.
This course aims at helping the students to:
