Long-Distance Course Gives Students Better Writing Skills

Information Officer Joe Freeman facilitates a MOOC discussion on college writing.

The long-distance course (MOOC) format continues to be popular at the American Center. ‘College Writing 2.2x: English Grammar and Essay Writing’ started on February 4th. Spanning the Vietnamese lunar new year holiday, the course attracted hundreds of students to three discussion sessions. Part of an academic writing course series, this set of three classes focused on proofreading, self-editing, revision, common English grammar errors, tone, diction, and building vocabulary.
