CommSci ESL Monthly Clinic with Special Guest Speaker Greg Holland,
March 1, noon-1pm, FL2-1002
While there may some controversy as to whether the language of the
Aussie is English, no one will dispute that learning from MMM Director
Greg Holland is a treat! Greg will share his experience with ESL
issues as an editor, author and scientist in his own inimitable way at
the March 1 ESL writing and presentation clinic.
Greg's topic is ìOf ships and shoes and sealing wax, of why scientific
writing is so bloody hard, and whether pigs have wings.î For more
about Greg, see http://www.mmm.ucar.edu/people/holland/files/vita.pdf.
Everyone is welcome. To ensure enough seating, R.S.V.P. to
jsun at ucar.edu and mark your calendar for Thursday, March 1, noon-1 pm,
in FL2-1002. Bring a plate and bog in or have a cuppa tea!
