Over the course of this semester, professors will require students to write many academic papers from policy memos to research papers to literature reviews and so on. After staring at a computer screen for hours, it is possible that you may overlook some mistakes in your papers, for example, subject-verb agreement, prepositions, and verb tenses.
A great way to identify grammatical mistakes is by reading your paper out loud. Although it seems time-consuming, you will have a better chance of detecting errors in your paper.
After writing, take a short break and then find a quiet place without distractions where you can read your paper out loud. This will allow you to focus and will help make sure that your final draft is error-free.
