Writing Center

The Writing Center offers advice and guidance to students on every kind of written work, from notes, outlines, and drafts to research papers and application letters. By signing up for a consultation with a native English speaker at the Center, you can get individual help at any stage of the writing process. We ask you to identify the issues you think are most important – grammar, style, structure, argumentation, citations, etc. – and then we work with you to improve not only the paper at hand, but your writing skills in general.

Office hours during the summer semester 2012:

    8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

The Writing Center is located in Room 221 of the Anglistisches Seminar. Just sign up on the door for an appointment with a native speaker. You can bring a printout of your work, a laptop, a memory stick or just questions.
