English: skills for learning

Description

This free badged course from The Open University will help you develop your English reading and writing skills you will need to succeed at university.

Course format

Although the course has been designed to be studied over eight weeks, the course is open all year for you to join at anytime and study at your own pace.

You’ll use plenty of real-life examples and opportunities to practise your new understanding and skills, through a combination of weekly interactive quizzes, AV and text. During the first two weeks you will be introduced to academic reading and some effective reading and note-making strategies. In the following three weeks, you will develop your essay writing skills. You will then spend two weeks on academic style and vocabulary building strategies. Finally, in the last week, you will focus on sentence structure and punctuation.

By completing the course you have the opportunity to earn a digital badge to demonstrate your new skills.
