Welcome to the blog for the English Skills courses at Athabasca University: English 140--Grammar; English 143--Writing for Academic Purposes; and English 146--Reading for Academic Purposes. These courses may be taken separately or as part of the English Language Proficiency Program. The goal is to increase the communication between students and instructors,to provide you with an opportunity to communicate with each other, and to practice the skills taught in these courses; note that not all skills are appropriate to each course. 

In June, we welcome the following students to these courses. We hope you will enjoy your studies and participate in the blog.
Engl 140:Jennifer and Sharif
Engl 143:Annemieke, Jennifer, and Marissa

Assignments marked with asterisks (**...**) are mandatory for Engl 140 students (Assignment 9).

IMPORTANT: This blog site is open to the public; do not post personal information that could identify you--first name and the initial of your last name are the only personal information you should post.
