An Scríbhneoireacht Acadúil agus an Dátheangachas: AWC Workshop on Bilingualism for Speakers of Irish and English on Wednesday (4 February 2015)


An Scríbhneoireacht Acadúil agus an Dátheangachas




Academic Writing and Bilingualism (For Irish/English Speakers)

Due to the minority status of the language, writing in Irish entails various challenges for both native and non-native speakers. Yet despite these challenges, research shows that bilingualism is advantageous, as bilingual speakers often benefit from higher cognitive skills. This interactive workshop will address the main challenges faced by visitors to the Academic Writing Centre. In addition, the workshop aims to highlight how bilingualism can facilitate academic argumentation and the development of a well-defined academic voice.

The workshop will take place on Wednesday 4 February at 5pm in the Library Training Room.
