Academic language proficiency consists of vocabulary, grammar, and a discourse style of academic, or professional language. Traditional teaching approaches include describing the language, preparing materials and explicitly teaching academic language. This has never worked. Whether you are teaching university students or just hoping to improve your own academic language proficiency, join Stephen Krashen to find out what does work.
By special agreement with Dr. Krashen, we are delighted to be able to offer this self-study course at no charge. This course includes four one-hour video recordings, readings, and discussion questions.
