English Language Fellow Nathan Meyer delivered the keynote presentation at the 3rd International Student Symposium in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The event is a gathering of young language and linguistics students who present and share their research with international scholars from across the Balkan region.
Meyer was invited as an expert in English for academic purposes to give a speech on current issues and best practices in EAP. During his presentation, Meyer guided the audience through the fundamental underpinnings of all academic writing, discussed core strategies to improve academic writing, and detailed the best practices of giving academic presentations.
“The presentation was framed within the context of promoting English as a global communication system currently used by more than 1.2 billion people around the world and vital to their future academic and professional success. The presentation was followed by a 40 minute workshop that directly solicited and addressed students’ core difficulties with all aspects of academic writing and presentations,” Meyer said.
