Course Description
(This course is only open to S6 entrants from the Faculties of Engineering, Medicine and Science.). This course addresses the skills of expository (descriptive and explanatory) writing. Today's students will need such skills throughout their professional lives. The course focuses mainly on paragraph and document level aspects, including areas such as formality, credibility, originality, use of sources, coherence, and engaging the reader's interest. 

The course is practical and academic. By practicing writing critical reviews or proposals, one will learn how to improve the structure, language and format of his writing, in order to render his article more formal, readable and persuasive, in workplace as well as in academia. However, one may not expect to improve his English level in this course, because the focus is format rather than language. 

The workload is quite heavy, because numerous deadlines flood in throughout the term. But if one wishes to gain better results in this course, he has to study the course booklet (which contains most core contents of the course) carefully while finishing those assignments well. Of course, diligence is required.

Course Description
課程介紹了expository writting的一些基礎內容,為學術論文的寫作打好基礎,一般是Y2以上才上,對詞彙量有要求,不過不是很明顯。本人year1,略感壓力,不過很有用,建議Y1課程壓力不大的可以去上。
Assessment
計課堂表現及attendance;若干次Moodle的寫作task,只計attendance;兩次堂內小測,關於text book裏面的內容的,第一次較水,第二次不水且有複習part;一份proposal內容自定,關於proposal會有個人堂內presentation、構思在moodle上載、outline、first draft以及final draft。
