DISSERTATION WRITING COURSE in Johor BahruDISSERTATION WRITING COURSE in Johor Bahru

Sometimes we hear students say they did not care what was the outcome of their research/dissertation writing. They just wanted to finish it. 

Writing a dissertation or thesis is a major part of every graduate student’s education. But when and how do you begin? And how can you stay on track to finish on time? These are important questions that most graduate students are not bothered about? 

Make no mistake about it. We are here to help you!

(A) RESEARCH/DISSERTATION WRITING COURSE (CODE: DW-1)

What is dissertation writing?

Being at the phase of dissertation writing, Ph.D./DBA students often need to comprehend the high expectations an academic institution has from its students. These do not only include the level of authenticity, quality of the research or the use of appropriate terminology; they also include writing out the research paper using good formatting or sequencing. Students need to follow the proper writing format of their research paper in accordance with the institution’s guidelines.

Therefore, knowing how to write the chapters of the research paper is critical. Not only does each chapter need different tenses,  but students also need to know what appropriate tenses to use from Chapter 1 through Chapter 5. Organization, arrangement, and content for each Chapter add another headache for some students, and are, therefore, crucial for a research/dissertation paper to be accepted as a scholarly piece of work.

On top of that, how does content, sequencing, plagiarism, and citation play a role in the writing? Not knowing how they do may eventually fail the student and make his/her paper unreadable and unacceptable.  

Here at Ambitious Language Centre, we hold classes to teach you the correct way of writing a dissertation. On top of that, we guide you by teaching you sentence structure, arrangement, content, formatting, paragraphing, citation, and how to avoid plagiarism. Come and visit us.

Below is an example of a proper writing format for a research/dissertation paper. Can you write with confidence?

(B) DISSERTATION GRAMMAR COURSE (DG-1)

HOW IMPORTANT IS RESEARCH/DISSERTATION GRAMMAR TO YOU?

Grammar dictates the quality and essence of a good research /dissertation. Most of the time, we face problems writing a good research or dissertation. It is not because we do not know how to write it, but it is because we are not good at grammar. Bad grammar always lets us down. Read the following tips carefully and see how they can help you in your research writing. We, at Ambitious Language Centre, can help you to write well. Come and visit us. We have tailor-made grammar classes for you.

Some Tips on Grammar, Punctuation, and Style

*Do not use abbreviations or acronyms—For example, it is difficult to understand words such as NATO, ESP, EU, CEO, or AIDS. If you have to use them, what must you do?

*Check your dashes and hyphens. When you are setting off a clause, use the longer dash, called an m-dash. (You can indicate this dash with two hyphens-like this-if you do not have an m-dash function on your computer.) Be sure that the parts of the sentence that precede and follow the dashes would make sense even if you removed the dashes and the words they bracket.

*Try not to use split infinitives. This involves the “ to not go” instead of “not to go.”

* “that” is not used to refer to a person: “The teacher that taught the class in the mall.” “The salesman that he was telling you about.” Use who or whom: “The teacher who taught the class in the mall.” “The salesman whom he was telling you about.”

*Using Who or whom? In most cases, students find it difficult to choose the correct word. You should choose the word which shows someone who does the action. We call this person (i.e., the subject) who. The person who receives the effect of the action or gets something done to him/her (the object) is called whom.

*Try to avoid passive voice. Active voice is much preferred. For example, we can say “Alfred’s car” rather than “the car of Alfred.”

*Referents must be clear. Using “This” or “that” or, simply, “it,” sometimes can confuse people. What are we referring to? When you use “he” or “she” or “these people,” will your readers understand what you are referring to?

*Commas and semi-colons. Read one of your sentences to yourself and see where you would logically pause, i.e., hold your breath for a while. If you make a short pause, consider putting a comma. If you need to pause longer, but not stopping entirely (for which you would need a period), you most likely require a semi-colon. Do remember that whatever follows a semi-colon, it has to stand on its own, as a full sentence.

*There should not be a comma if you do not want your reader to pause. It is very difficult to figure out what you are saying when your punctuation makes the sentence unreadable.

*Make sure that your sentences have parallel construction. Examine this sentence. Does it have parallel construction? “Going through my journal, I notice it has lots of mistakes, and with no headings” To ensure that it does, it should read as: “Going through my journal, I notice it has lots of mistakes and no headings.” Let us try this sentence: “Re-checking my wallet, I notice it is empty, and with no photos.” The answer should be: “Re-checking my wallet, it is empty and lacking photos.” In the two examples with parallel construction, you could take out any of the words in the list and still have the sentence make sense. Right?

*Italics versus underlines. Never use “both.” You can use either one of them. This rule is applied because they mean the same thing. Editors underline words as a copy-editing mark  to tell printers to set certain words in italic type. Underlining italics, on the other hand, means the editor wanted the words to be taken out of italics.
