Report : 2019 Fall Academic Writing Seminar
held “Academic Writing Seminar” at KIC and BKC on Tuesday, October 15
and Friday, October 18.
This seminar focused on the important points of writing thesis in English, and it was
a good chance for graduate students to learn the basic knowledge and skills for writing
high quality theses. This seminar was held in English as an incentive short course for 90 minutes.
The instructor is a native English speaker and his explanation was very clear and specific.
All attendees sent the instructor what they aren’t sure and what they want to learn in advance.
Therefore, the instructor gave a class based on their questions and the class was fruitful for all.
There are many words and expression in English. It’s very difficult to choose the appropriate words
and expressions for what the writer wants to tell. All attendees realized again that it is very important
for all to use grammars properly to keep the consistency in their papers. We hope all attendees utilize
what they learned and listened during this seminar
