This course strengthens students’ everyday writing and vocabulary skills. It aims to make the study of grammar, punctuation, and vocabulary relevant to their lives. Students write a short paper each week on a topic that is meaningful to them, and through consistent practice, revision, games, activities, and weekly quizzes, they get better and better at editing their own writing.
