They also become more open and appreciative of other cultures and traditions. The Humanities opens doors. The courses in the Humanities aim to provide students with a liberal humanistic education characterized by sapientia et eloquentia.
I have worked for a number of years as a university lecturer teaching courses in literature, writing studies and critical thinking in Australia and New Zealand. I have also taught ESL as having a Japanese father and European mother meant growing up with an awareness of the vagaries of language.
I have been in love with words since my mother first began reading me bedtime stories and, for this reason, desire always that every word be treated with respect. What does that look like? It means using the right word in the right place at the right time.
Doing so almost guarantees that your readers will want to keep reading because they can fully grasp the ideas being communicated. How is it achieved? Curiosity about what it means to really think well, curiosity about those who have done so, and the certain knowledge that it is a skill that can be learned.
My passion for language blossomed at a tender age. From the time I first learned to read, I devoured any written material I could get my hands on—when I was six, my mother found me poring over the word problems in a mathematics textbook, for lack of anything better to read.
As I grew older, my interests led me in different directions: I studied biology in college, then went on to work as an IT systems administrator for twenty-six years.
However, I never forgot my early love of the written word, and one of the most rewarding aspects of my IT job was using my language skills to make complex technical subjects understandable to laypeople.
Eventually, I chose to pursue a career as an editor so I could focus exclusively on helping authors communicate more effectively. In my leisure time, you can find me reading literary fiction, clicker training my border collie, and enjoying the Southern California sunshine.
My advice for improving your writing is to read—a lot. Although my formal education in writing and editing was important, my most valuable language lessons have come from years of reading and paying attention to how great writers construct their sentences and narratives.
Bald zeigte sich, dass ich ihr sowieso zu perfektionistisch war. So widmete ich meine Leidenschaft der Sprache.
Ich entdeckte begeistert, dass auch Computer eindeutigen Regeln gehorchen, und landete als Quereinsteiger in der IT. Nun leite ich als Senior-Korrektor andere Korrektoren an, korrigiere selbst und schreibe, manchmal auch Liebesbriefe.
Aber das ist noch immer ein schwieriges Terrain. Anderen Schreibenden empfehle ich, nicht gleich nach Perfektion zu suchen.
Ein Text darf reifen, oft wird er dann am besten. Auch wenn das wissenschaftliche Schreiben sich vom journalistischen unterscheidet, so gibt es eine Regel, die immer gilt: Das alles gilt auch im Wissenschaftsbetrieb. I hold a Law LL.Aimee.
