Week 4 – “Ain’t So / Is Not”

I am a bit late on my comments .. ūüė¶

On that day, we talk about¬†the chapter¬†“Ain’t So / Is Not”, this reading shows that academic writing does not have to be always formal. In fact, you can use your own words, also it can be “relaxed, easy to follow and a bit fun” as it is stated in this chapter of the book.

Indeed, different type of writings can be mixed, for example, your everyday words or expressions can be used to give a more realistic point of view.

In other words, when you write a text in academic writing and depending on your audience, it does not have to be all very formal.


Week 3 – The Art of Metacommentary.

Little Red Riding Hood arrived at grandmother’s house. And then, she knocked on the main door but surprisingly no one was answering. So she decided to penetrate her grandmother’s house from the door of the backward. Anxiously and very carefully, she opened and entered. In other words, she felt that something was really unusual, considering that her lovely grandmother can always feel her arriving miles away. Finally, once in the house she started to look with grand prudence for her missing grandmother… And the story can continues as we all know or at our own imagination. Some readers may object that as The Little Red Ridding Hood is a very popular story but it can be used with alternative ways depending on the writer. My conclusion is that Metacommentary¬†is definitely¬†a helpful way to¬†develop¬†and generate more text.

“They say, I say”

Waouu!! “They say, I say” The moves that matter in Academic Writing, I have to say that I don’t read a lot of books (particularly in English) but this has to change for my own benefit and personal interest to progress.

This book is very interesting, it actually teach you how to write and understand texts. Also the purpose of¬†this book is obviously to explain in simple writing the ‚ÄúBasic Moves‚ÄĚ (for example, the correct transition words..) by showing them very clearly and representing them in form of templates.

This book, with all this templates is an eye opener on how to put into writing our thoughts and opinions. This is what I call great and really helpful .

Inception The movie


I went last week to the cinema, we watched the movie Inception with Leonardo Dicaprio. I was not dissappointed!!! This movie shows a new idea, the story is very innovative and thrilling. We all know that Technology in our days keep growing very fast, which is a little bit scary. Inception shows the audience a new idea of how, with new technology, can permit to enter the human mind through a dream. I really like it !! the ending leave us at our own imagination and open for any debate. I will recommend to anyone ..
