Writing advice for students of German as a foreign language

The writing consultation provides Learners of German as a foreign language with support/advice for how to structure and plan seminar papers, bachelor's and master's theses and also with help for any questions regarding linguistic norms and strategies on how to formulate academic texts cohesively and concisely.

Improving writing skills should be understood as a process. Thus, long-term support and guidance is also possible. The writing advice for learners of German as a foreign language should be seen as a means of self-improvement and is therefore entirely geared towards the writer. It does not include correction or advice on the content.
