JTC: Making your own way: Reading for academic purposes in your target language

Wed 18 Jan 2017


If you are learning a language to be able to read academic text, this workshop can help you to work on your method. No single way is right for everyone: come prepared to make your own. With support, explore some helpful reading strategies and the choices you can make in how you approach your text.

Bring: a typical text in your target language that you need to read.

What are the strengths and weaknesses of your current approach? How could you develop it further? How could your language learning, and by extension your reading, be more efficient?

This workshop aims to help you to:

1.) Use a tool to evaluate your current reading technique.

2.) Bridge the gap between your current level of proficiency and your text.

3.) Tackle frequent challenges such as: increasing your reading speed, dealing with volume/quantity, measuring your progress.

This informal workshop is open to learners of any language, at any level.

Target audience

University students and staff


The sample text that you bring along is essential.
