This workshop will refresh and expand your understanding of verbs, verb tenses, and voice. We’ll review rules about how to form verb tenses and subtle differences in time that they convey, focusing on how to avoid common errors. We’ll also talk about issues related to passive voice. Finally, we’ll cover conditionals. We’ll do practice exercises to test and reinforce your understanding, and answer any questions related to verbs.
*Note: These grammar workshops are a review, rather than an introduction, of English grammar. They provide in-depth explanations of the parts of speech and rules of usage that are most commonly misapplied in academic writing.
