Pimp Your Grammar (4 h, G1 or G2)

It has already been several months since you graduated and that is why we will revise some of the most important grammar facts together. Our two main topics will be tense and aspect of verbs, as well as punctuation – or more specifically: all beloved comma rules. Furthermore, we will talk about useful dictionaries and collocation databases that you can use when writing your term papers.

All this will be done in an open atmosphere and with the help of many different interactive forms so that you hopefully won’t get bored!

Present – Be Present! (4 h, P1 or P2)

This workshop will give you an overview of the presentation basics expected by staff of the English seminar. While reviewing physical aspects of presenting and preparation, we will also inspect how to ensure you can actively participate in class even when you're not at the front.
The theory will be accompanied by lots of practice and activities.

Ersti Boo(s)tcamp (2 h, B1 or B2)

his workshop will introduce you to the most important know-hows of uni life so that you will survive your first weeks without any nervous breakdowns or newly grey hair. We will look at many different aspects such as your role at uni, which expectations you have to expect, how to behave, etc. Also, we will have a first look at how to do research, term papers, and the danger of plagiarism.
