Another semester has started, and I am teaching the academic writing and grammar course in the first tier of our EAP program at the University of Calgary. I’m really excited to be teaching this class because writing has to be one of my favourite subjects. This semester I’m looking forward to blogging regularly about life, the universe and everything with my students. I can’t wait to get started. I think we are going to have a lot of interesting things to write about. This semester we are going to be looking at the topics of international business, art history, psychology, and health science. The students are also going to be learning about how to write perfect paragraphs and good solid academic essays. We are going to be spending a lot of time perfecting our paragraphing skills because they are the basic building blocks of everything the students are going to be doing during the next few years in university. I hope this class is going to be the foundation to a successful time at the University of Calgary. I know the students are going to be great!
