About the course

Our English Writing skills course is designed to teach both academics, school students and professionals the tricks of writing in English. Whether you are struggling with essays, dissertations, or just want to refine your writing style for (professional) articles, this course is the key to success. With personal attention from a native speaker, you will not only learn the right structure and style, but also how to find and use your own unique voice in English. 

American or British?

As you know, American English (AE) and British English (BE) have a lot in common, but they certainly have some differences – in spelling, punctuation, capitalization and idiom. We will ask you to choose AE or BE so that your writing is internally consistent.

Frequently asked questions

1. Who is this course suitable for?

This course is suitable for those who have already mastered a fair level of English writing and are studying or working in a field where academic writing is important, such as science or medicine.

3. How long will the English writing skills course take?

The course lasts between 12 and 20 hours and is usually spread over about two months, depending on your learning goals and availability. Many participants decide to extend their course afterwards, so that they can work on their English writing skills on an ongoing basis. This flexible time frame allows you to learn at your own pace.
