Eric Ahlberg has been teaching English academic writing in German universities (previously Braunschweig and Hannover) for the last several years, including for graduates. The approach taken in his workshops and classes is that written language should not be an obstacle to understanding, but instead let your research stand out via clarity, accuracy and readability.
Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Eric Ahlberg also studied and worked in journalism in Canada. He came to Germany in 2010 to study his MA in National and Transnational Studies/English philology at the University of Münster.
You may contact Eric via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or come to his office hours where he offers a "Schreib-Sprechstunde".
Better Sentences and Paragraphs
Sentences and paragraphs are the building blocks of writing. This workshop will show you how to ensure your sentences and paragraphs are clearly written and logically structured. Getting them right will reflect in your writing as a whole. We will also review related techniques to enhance cohesion and coherence, which refer to the way your text’s logic and ease of readability flows and reinforces itself at all levels. There are several ways to do this, but doing it well takes some practice. Do not forget to bring your own texts to work on.
