Maria's response - continue

Today, I went to Maria's office to continue our discussion about my proposal. I leant much from her about English. Just realized, too many need to study. In general, Maria was very impressed with my proposal and she was looking forward to hearing from me about my progress.

Some important notes:
1. crieterion - crieteria
2. data - datum (but not geodetic datum)
3. phenomenon - fenomena
4. Clarify what kind of referencing system to use in writing

Maria's response

It is a good day for me. Maria gave a really positive response concerning my proposal. "Your proposal is good. I found some mistake in grammar but in general it is a really good start. As a non English speaker, yours is even better than some PhD candidates." says Maria.

Really?? I don't think so !

Some suggestion from Maria:
1. Pay attention to subject-verb agreement
2. plural - singular
3. preposition (to, with, by, etc)

Proposal Consultation with Maria

Maria is a lady from The Learning Center of UNSW. She is a linguist and is really nice and helpful. I've just sent her the very first draft of my proposal to ask her for some corrections on lingustic problems.
I am not an english speaker (nor writer), for sure I need a hand to make my writing sounds more English :)

The First Post

I found many blogs are dedicated to personal casual life. Most of them are about something light, fun and sometimes touching.

I then think, why don't start to create a serious blog? This question leads me to creating a blog about my thesis :) Bit too heavy, maybe, but I found it is a good way to memorize all stuffs about my research.

I am too lazy to manually write everything in a logbook. So.. why not.
There you go! This is a blog about my research.
