Most international students need to write essays for exams and coursework. Yet writing good academic English is one of the most demanding tasks students face. This new edition of "Academic Writing" has been fully revised to help students reach this goal. Clearly organised, the course explains the writing process from start to finish. Each stage is demonstrated and practised, from selecting suitable, reading, note-making and planning throught to re-writing and proof-reading. The four main parts of "Academic Writing" allow teachers and students to easily find the help they need. Each part is divided into short sections, which contain examples, explanations and exercises, for use in the classroom or self-study. Cross-references allow easy access to relevant sections, and a full answer key is featured on the companion website.
"Writing for Advenced Learners of English" is a collection of stimulating writing activities for advenced learners of English language and literature. The emphasis is on the development of free written expression through a series of graded steps. This graded approach is reflected in the four sections of the book: manipulation (students focus on aspects of accuracy, such as punctuation and editing), imitation (students work inventively within a range of genres), variations on a theme (students are encouraged to explore parallel ways of expressiing the same idea, such as writing about an event from a variety of stances), invention (students attempt more open-ended creative tasks).
This new series entry delivers an uncomplicated analysis of the nature of writing, particularly in terms of process, product, and genre. Descriptions of a broad range of writing tasks enable teachers to select those that will be most effective in developing students writing skills.

The text's time-proven approach integrates the study of rhetorical patterns and the writing process with extensive practice in sentence structure and mechanics.
