    to address my studies

    Good evening,

    which verb would you choose in this case ?

    "The course catalogue, provided(?) to me during the conference, proved to be very useful to address/direct/orient my studies"

    I would appreciate any other formulation of the sentence.

    Thank you

    Re: to address my studies

    As an NES but not a teacher:

    I would personally use the word "orientate" in the context provided.

    Re: to address my studies

    Thank you Route.

    The context is quite formal. The meaning is: "the description of the courses gave me the possibility to better orientate my studies before joining the Master"

    What you think about: "channell/target my studies" ?

    A word of caution - don't use words that you can't spell (channel).

    If you are looking for a better word to use, I would suggest, in this case, "focus".

    [QUOTE=inggestionale;969850][T]he description of the courses gave me the possibility to better focus my studies before joining the Master's (course/programme).

    As you see, I agree with R21 about 'focus'.
