Multilingual Studio

The Multilingual Studio offers a welcoming space for you as a multilingual student to develop your reading, writing and critical thinking skills. It's an an opportunity to engage your multilingual abilities in enhancing your understanding of the genres and conventions of academic writing.

You will meet once a week for two to three hours for 11 weeks to learn and practice reading and writing strategies, get expert advice on how to incorporate effective academic moves in your written work, learn alongside motivated peers, and exchange ideas and learn from each other.

Two sessions are available for the Winter 2021 term: Thursdays at 11:30 and Fridays at 1:30.

Our Studio is an inclusive, collaborative and interactive space. Our specialist instructor Dunja Baus uses a learning-through-doing experiential approach to promote an active and critical approach to key academic skills.
