English for academics

Private, one-to-one English language classes for PhD students and academics, with a focus on written English for papers and PhD theses.
In partnership with LinguaTracks language school.

  • Do you worry about your level of English?
  • Do you struggle to write well and communicate clearly?
  • Have you had papers rejected on the basis of language?

If so, you are not alone!

English is an essential skill for almost all academics and PhD students. No matter how good your research is, your ability to communicate your work clearly and confidently in writing, in English, is often the limiting factor.

Make English your strength

Many PhD students, knowing that they have to write a thesis in English, do nothing but stress about it. Knowing that English is their weakness, they simply avoid the issue.

But if you embrace the challenge and decide to work on your English, you can turn that weakness, that limiting factor, into a strength. Instead of it being a burden, it can be a powerful tool to help you communicate your research.
