Here is a blog post written by one of our trainer Claudia.
The other week, one of my students asked me if it’s really funny for British people to hear all of the mistakes made by non-native speakers. Another one chipped in with an anecdote of how he’d been in the pub with a group of Brits who had seemingly made no effort to adapt their language to take account of the fact that English wasn’t his first language. I bought myself some time with the classic response ‘Hmm, that’s a really interesting question.’ However, I wasn’t lying – it is a really interesting question, one which I’ll attempt to give a multi-stranded response to this week.

As I mentioned in my brief post last week, this week I’m going to write about Julie Moore’s excellent webinar for OUP on Approaches to Teaching Academic Grammar. This was the first time I’d attended a webinar and I found the experience very interesting. Over a hundred attendees from all over the world could comment on and discuss Julie’s informative talk as she was giving it.
Many of our former students will be now be getting ready to start university in the UK. A major component of successful study at a British university is being able to understand and use academic English. That's why our English for University and IELTS preparation courses have a strong focus on helping students to develop their skills in this area.
