Take Academic English Lessons in Washington DC

Chances are you are reading this because you wish to improve your academic English progress. Well look no further, you’ve arrived at the right place at Superprof!

Needing to write in academic English in universities, scientific institutions and many other places that value higher learning and thinking is something to consider if you plan to attend an English-language high school, college, or university. 

It may also be important for some companies and organizations you are thinking about working for as well!

Or if you’re applying to graduate programs you will definitely need to use academic English to pass the GRE.

But not to worry! All it takes is a slightly different approach, some good tips, practice to become an expert at academic writing, and Superprof tutoring!

A Good Reason to Learn Academic English

When you are writing an academic journal article, a dissertation, an essay, or a report, it’s important to use a more formal writing style than what you’d use to write something like an email or a short story. 

This formal style is known as academic English writing, and it’s important because it helps make your text clear, direct, and understandable. 

It also adds a layer of professionalism to your writing, which may encourage your audience to view your arguments more seriously and add credibility to you as the author.

Writing Do’s and Don’ts

Here are a few Academic English writing tips focusing on grammar and style that will help make your academic writing shine!

Forget everything you know about writing online. Writing for academic purposes means writing formally. What does that look like? Here are a few general rules to remember when writing formally:

Avoid using contractions. You don’t want to make that mistake. As the previous sentence shows, instead of writing “don’t,” write “do not.” This minute decision is a given when writing formally.

Avoid using slang or colloquialisms. 

Choose the most fitting words for your paper based on their dictionary definitions, not the way people use them in conversation. For example, if you’re using the word “literally,” use “exactly” or “without exaggeration,” which is the original, correct meaning of the word.

Avoid using the first-person point of view. 

This just means you should not use personal words like “I,” “me” or anything else from your perspective.

When you distance yourself from your writing and let facts speak for you, it allows your audience to remove feelings and stick to facts which are super important when writing papers. Instead of saying “I think the study shows…” say “The results of the study imply…” 

Do you see how much a difference that made?

This brings you to the realization that academic English writing is all about the facts and how those facts support our arguments. 

Intense and emotional language is generally not used in an academic paper as it translates to a biased perspective. 

Use words that don’t show your feelings about something. For instance, instead of saying something is “bad” or “terrible” you can say it’s “inadequate” or “poor.

Having a foundation of academic English has so many useful benefits for professional writing and career opportunities. 

Building a persuasive resume, cover letter, letter of introduction, and other important career-related letters are a few examples where academic English writing can come in handy.

In any formal learning institution where writing plays an important role, nearly all the writing you’ll do in a university will require academic English. 

Whether you’re writing an essay or a lab report, you’re using academic writing.

And the skills you learn can help you in your career. Typing work-related documents, essays for scientific journals, and many other careers require you to know a basic understanding of academic writing. 

It is an understatement to say it is important rather it’s absolutely necessary if you wish to pursue any professional career.
