The ELI Fall Workshop Series on English for Academic Purposes kicks off this Friday, October 23, 3-5 pm, with a two-hour session designed to help international graduate students write more effective emails messages:

Have you ever struggled to write important email messages? Have you ever wondered whether your email messages are a good reflection of your professional persona? Given the importance of email in academic and professional settings, the ability to write effective e-mail messages is an essential skill. In this workshop we will focus on strategies for writing clear, effective and professional email. We will discuss the aspects of email that make it likely to be read, to be easily understood and to create a good impression. Bring a few samples of your important email messages to analyze. 

This workshop is free to all currently enrolled U-M graduate students, but space is limited, so registration is required. Visit the website for more information about the entire fall workshop series.
