Using Academic English

Get started

Language, culture, educational background and the subject area you study all influence writing in English, even in an academic context. For example, not all cultural traditions teach that you should announce your topic directly in an introduction, or use your conclusion to merely restate what has gone before. Other differences include the extent to which figures of speech such as metaphor are used.
