EAP Workshop: Managing Nominalization in Academic Reading and Writing

2021-3-26

We wrapped up our EAP Workshop Series for the Spring semester, with Dr. Li Zhuo presenting on the topic of Nominalization. Those in attendance were treated to applicable examples from the television show, “Big Bang Theory” which Dr. Li used to highlight the importance of communicative understanding.

This topic can make simple ideas sound complex without really saying “anything”, and from the workshop, students learned how to minimalize nominalization, focusing instead on the Who, What, Why, and Where of communication, rather than on sounding intelligent by nominalizing nouns for no purpose.

Next week the Center for Language Education will switch gears and begin our Writing Center Workshops, with a series of five, taking place every Thursday throughout April. As always, these will be updated accordingly on our Website, and WeChat, so stay tuned.
