The content for Better Grammar was developed at Curtin University to support students who have already met the university English language entrance requirements to write academic papers and make presentations.
The focus here, therefore, is not on learning the rules “which you may already have mastered” but on examining some of the more critical grammar usage and “getting it right” in the right context. Mastery of specific aspects of the English language can make the difference between meeting and not meeting academic expectations.
Working with a diverse range of students, we have identified five areas that students find challenging. They are verbs and tenses, writing complex sentences, using articles, choosing prepositions, and recognising grammatical errors.
This program gives you the opportunity to develop skills that will help you deal with these challenging areas.
