Academic Writing, 5th Edition, (ePub) helps international students succeed in writing essays and reports for their English-language academic courses. Comprehensively revised and updated, it is designed to let students and teachers easily find the topics they need, both in the classroom and for self-study.

The ebook consists of five parts:

    • Writing Models
    • Language Issues
    • Elements of Writing
    • The Writing Process
    • Vocabulary for Writing

The first part describes and practises every stage of essay writing, from choosing the best sources, reading, and note-making, to proofreading and referencing. The remaining four parts, organised alphabetically, can be taught in combination with the first part or used on a remedial basis. A progress check at the end of every part allows students to evaluate their learning. All units are completely cross-referenced, and a complete set of answers to the practice exercises is included.

New topics in this edition include Writing in Groups, Written British and American English, and Writing Letters and Emails. Moreover, the new interactive website has a full set of teaching notes in addition to more challenging exercises, links, and revision material to other sources. Additional features of the ebook include:

    • Glossary to describe technical terms, plus index
    • Designed for self-study along with classroom use
    • Useful at both undergraduate and postgraduate level
    • Models provided for writing tasks like case studies and essays
    • Use of authentic academic texts from a wide range of disciplines

Written to deal with the particular language issues faced by international students, this practical, user-friendly ebook is an invaluable guide to academic writing in English.
