What people are saying about the course:

Before taking the first academic writing course with Taylor, writing was a daunting task. After taking the course, writing has become the most enjoyable task. During this course Taylor helped me to get rid of some of my most common mistakes while writing and to give an easy flow to all my texts. I am very happy with the results.

Last year I attended your ‘academic writing in English' course. Last week I had a meeting with my supervisors to discuss my PhD progress and they mentioned the high quality of my writing. Thanks to you! I noticed that the course really improved my writing. Again, I want to thank you for your very helpful course.

In this course, I learned not only to improve my academic writing but also to structure my texts. I also learned some advanced rules of written communication. I now feel more comfortable and able to accurately express my ideas and have even started to correct my colleagues' work. I strongly recommend it. Taylor perfectly mixes theory and direct practical advice on your own work.

Do you recognize that moment of sitting behind your desk looking at a blank screen, feeling desperate, or that moment of receiving back your manuscript completely red and unrecognizable? I did, but not anymore! My writing significantly improved after following the course “academic writing”. I felt that my co-authors understood what I was writing about. Wow! I was delighted! Now, I am even arguing (with my co-authors) about the English words, grammar, past or present, British versus American, concise writing and the flow of the text. That is what you want, isn’t it? To be a sparring partner in the English language. Taylor is a very good coach in bringing you there! She teaches you how to shape your text into an excellent piece of art! And writing is fun now!

Today I received the comments by two reviewers on the paper I wrote during this class: "This paper is well written." "This is an interesting and well-written paper." So thank you, your advice paid off! :)

It has changed my writing significantly and therefore incredibly improved my scientific output quality. I think this course should be strongly encouraged for all PhD candidates.

When writing my manuscript, I thought that one could understand it with ease. After this course I know that it wasn't, and I know why it wasn't.

I learned a lot of things that may not sound difficult, but to apply them yourself actually is. The feedback was great!

I got brilliant tips which changed my view of writing.

Very complete and detailed course. You teach students from scratch to become the real experts of Academic English Writing.

I did not like writing texts before this course, especially when it came to writing tedious scientific articles. A friend of mine talked me into doing this course anyway. I definitely do not regret it! After this course I have a better understanding of the things that make a text flowy and readable. I now even enjoy trying to write an easy to understand and well written sentence. I am much more enthusiastic about scientific writing now!
