To “brush–up” means to refresh your memory and improve on a skill. The Academic English Skills Brush-Up Workshops will provide vital review and practice with the language skills essential for university success, and needed by so many undergraduate and graduate students whose native language is not English. At the beginning of the workshop, you may find that you are familiar with the skills covered, but the review will help you use those skills more accurately and confidently.
