Sometimes I'm left honestly unsure whether a student has a comprehension problem or a communication problem.
I've been working through providing feedback on drafts of honours capstone Rodent Science projects, which are written by Rodent Studies students in their final semester at university.
One part-draft contains the following phrases:
"this project studies the forests that inhabit the squirrel"
"the forests that inhabit the squirrel are mostly coniferous"
"the forests that inhabit the squirrel are hard to walk through"
Native English speaker, no registered issues… comprehension, or communication?
I can't wait to read the methods section if it was the former!
