Students require a firm grasp of subject-specific academic language and content in order to achieve success, and a focus on these key areas can form the basis of an effective study programme. Grade 9 students at Leipzig International School took part in a workshop in which they learned various revision techniques that paired academic language and content. Participants will experience this workshop in a condensed format from the point of view of students and will learn practical study skills and strategies to share with their own students.

Participants will:
• Identify academic language specific to content across a range of subjects
• Identify general academic language required to comprehend and compose more formal academic texts
• Understand the concept that all students are academic language learners
• Practice a range of strategies used to understand and learn academic language and subject content as part of a regular study routine
• Be able to use the concepts and strategies presented to run a similar workshop for their own students
