About this site

As you may already have noticed, throughout your career here at Ghent University you will have to write many essays, reports, short open text answers, forum contributions,... While in many cases you can and may indeed rely on your language instinct to produce a fine text, knowing the conventions of written academic English will certainly improve the level of that text and hopefully raise the bar of your own working knowledge in English.

This site is meant to bridge as many gaps as possible, and to help you to bring each writing task to a decent end. The structure of this site is quite straightforward. Each of the tabs in the top bar comes with its own navigation column on the left hand side of your screen -simple, right?

This site will be permanently under construction, so keep coming back! Feel free to contact me if you have questions and/or problems related to academic writing.
