What Clients Say

Academic writing is a very helpful course for non-native speakers. Each part of an academic paper was discussed in detail, including grammar and suitable vocabulary. The homework of writing a short paper step-by-step, was very useful for practicing.

I have taken part in the academic writing course of Nicole Klein. Although experienced in writing papers, the course helped me to significantly improve my language skills in the field of academic writing. Therefore I would recommend the course not only for beginners, but also for more experienced scientists.
Dr. Martin Pudlik, Competence Center Energiepolitik und Energiemärkte, Fraunhofer ISI
I found the course well structured and it gave me good insights of how to plan writing an academic paper. The atmosphere was very good and Nicole did a good job, being motivated throughout the course. I think what I learned will be very useful in my future work.
