EAL (English as an Additional Language) Student Brown Bag Lunch

  • Starts12:30 pm on Wednesday, July 27, 2022
  • Ends2:00 pm on Wednesday, July 27, 2022
Writing a PhD dissertation is a daunting task for everyone, and having to write it in a language that is not your native or first language can make it seem even more challenging. EAL (English as an Additional Language) writers often worry about their writing not being "academic enough", or can be unsure of their ability to choose the right words or know and apply grammatical rules properly. Yet, EAL PhD students perform as well as native English speakers when it comes to writing and submitting a well-written PhD dissertation on time, and even complete their PhD faster! Join us 12:30pm and 2pm for a Brown Bag lunch (location on the Charles River Campus TBA) to: share your experience, talk about the specific challenges you face in graduate school, and discuss strategies that you can put in place to become more at ease with writing in English, plan dissertation writing, and seek relevant resources and help.
