XENX024 E-Learning Module: Grammar for Writing (2 op)



LEARNING OUTCOMES: At the end of the module students are expected to better understand rules for using articles, prepositions, the passive voice, relative clauses, and tenses in texts.


A partly tutored e-learning course. All the course material is in the course workspace in Moodle https://moodle.jyu.fi/course/view.php?id=1404. All registered students should automatically gain access to the workspace. If this is not the case, please contact the course facilitator.


This course is for independent study and uses the Optima learning platform. Its purpose is to revise and practice those areas of English grammar that students frequently struggle with in academic writing. There are no classroom meetings for this course. The module should take roughly 30 hours to complete.


ASSESSMENT: The required learning tasks and deadlines (which are called 'check-in dates') are listed in Optima. You can decide yourself before which check-in date to submit your assignments for assessment. It is recommended that the modules are completed within one term (autumn term = September-December, spring term = January-May). After the check-in date, it will take one or two weeks for you to get the feedback and for the course credit to show in Korppi. Grading scale is pass / fail.


PROFICIENCY LEVEL: B2 - C1 (upper intermediate).
