    Written communication, both technical and non-technical, plays an essential role in today’s healthcare industry. As a result, strong writing skills are crucial for registered nurses.

    Writing plays a key role in nursing today. How effectively nurses are able communicate through writing can have a major impact on the impression they make on both patients and peers. Whether it’s writing memos about patients, drafting emails to other healthcare providers, or creating papers and presentations for academic study and research, all nurses must have the ability to express themselves clearly, effectively, and professionally through their writing.

    Fairly or not, in many cases people judge a person’s professional capabilities, even their intelligence, on their ability to demonstrate a proper use of grammar and language in written communication. The capacity to exhibit strong writing skills is a great advantage in a nursing career, and can provide nurses with a competitive edge when applying for positions in a tight job market.

    Small mistakes in grammar, spelling, or punctuation, can reduce a nurse’s credibility, result in a strong resume or cover letter going overlooked, or potentially ruin an otherwise excellent academic paper or presentation.

    International Legal English is an upper-intermediate to advanced level course for learners who need to be able to use English in the legal profession. The course is intended for law students and practising lawyers alike.
    Since the vast majority of practising lawyers in the world deal with commercial law. ILE focuses on the use of English for this purpose. Within the field of commercial law, a number of important topics ( such as company law, contract law, intellectual property, real property law, employment law, and sale of goods to name a few) have been selected as the legal subject matter of the lessons.

    Aims of the Course
    To improve your ability to write common legal text types in English, such as letters and memoranda.

    To improve your ability to read and understand legal texts.

    To increase your comprehension of spoken English when it is used to speak about legal topics in meetings, presentations, interviews, discussions.

    To strengthen your speaking skills and to enable you to engage in a range of speaking situations typical of legal practice.

    To introduce you to some of the language related aspects of the work of a commercial lawyer.

    Law vs Language
    It is important to bear in mind that ILE is intended to help law students and lawyers learn English in a legal context. Therefore, ILE should only be
    used for the purpose of learning legal English and should not be relied upon for legal advice or assistance in the practice of law.

The Study is a unique home-stay English academy that offers English for academic purposes/university preparation seminars of uncompromising quality and rigor. Our goal is to prepare you for the challenges and opportunities of overseas study by strengthening and enriching the core areas of academic English that are essential for success at universities in the English speaking world.

To prepare you for academic success abroad, we offer seminars in four key areas of English—the core knowledge you need to achieve your goals. Our curriculum and teaching methods have been tested and perfected over 15 years and have proven effective for hundreds of international students. With only six seminar participants, you experience the kind of personal attention that is usually only possible in very expensive one-to-one tutorials.

Our academic director, Professor I.G. MacDonald, was awarded a Bachelor of Arts (honours) degree from Queen’s University in Canada in 1997, a Master of Arts degree in 1999, and in 2003 he passed the comprehensive examination for a Ph.D. From 2005 until he retired in 2016, Professor MacDonald was Senior Foreign Professor of English Composition and Rhetoric in Dankook University’s Department of English Language and Literature, Graduate School of English Education,Department of Anglo-American Humanities, Graduate School of TESOL, and adjunct English language professor at the Korean Institute of Justice.


In sum, our English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program strengthens and enriches the following core academic areas:

Reading, listening and critical thinking
Vocabulary, grammar and structure
Composition and rhetoric
Research, presentation, and debate


In addition to our intensive academic English program, we also conduct Cambridge English Examination and Test of Legal English preparation classes. With a combined 25 years of experience, our teachers can help you successfully prepare for these high-stakes English examinations.

    Professor MacDonald is a powerful writing teacher who is always well prepared, enthusiastic, and professional. From his courses Creative and Discursive Writing and English Composition at DKU, I have gained the knowledge of how a academic writing should look like and the practical application. I highly recommend him for those who would like to learn English in an academic and professional level.

    Professor Ian Macdonald was both a professor of mine as an MA TESOL student at DKU in South Korea and a colleague for many years in the same department after I was hired as a professor. He was always dedicated to his work and a knowledgable and kind mentor. His work in English linguistics including in the areas of syntax and rhetoric were exemplary and he lectures on academic writing demonstrated his passion for his subject matter. I highly recommend his courses for anyone who has an interest in improving their writing skills, particularly for those whose first language is not English looking to study and/or work in English speaking countries.

    Professor MacDonald is the best teacher I have had. I have studied English for many years but still had mistakes and difficulties. Professor MacDonald helped with my grammar and conversation skills. My English has drastically improved and I was able to get a job that requires fluent English!
