Workshop: Improving English fluency and accuracy using My Words and Check My Words

Do you need to improve your English
- Vocabulary?
- Pronunciation?
- Accuracy?
- Fluency?
This workshop will show you how to become a better speaker and writer of English in your own time and at your own pace, using online tools developed at UST.
My Words is a vocabulary-learning website that allows you to add words from any website and learn these words systematically (meanings, pronunciations, collocations and more):
Check My Words is a toolbar for Microsoft Word that gives you access to a wide range of writing resources that explain common errors, help you never use the wrong word again, correct any English phrase, and much more.

What does the workshop cover?
This workshop will introduce two programs developed in the Language Center that target the English learning needs and difficulties of Chinese speakers. Hands-on practice will be provided to ensure that by the end of the workshop, you will be able to:
• Improve your vocabulary using My Words
• Access games and tests to evaluate your vocabulary learning progress
• Check your English accuracy and fluency using various resources in the Check My Words toolbar

Target audience
Faculty, instructors and students who have limited or no experience with the My Words suite of programs and who want to improve their English fluency and accuracy.
