Entering university can be challenging and confusing for new students as they encounter large first-year classes and demanding independent study responsibilities for the first time. Writing English with style provides essential skills for university success by honing writing, reading, researching and studying competencies.
Writing English with style has been upgraded and expanded, addressing new areas such as listening and note taking skills and the Chicago Manual of Style referencing system. Recognising that understanding sentence construction, paragraph development and essay writing are only as sound as the grammar that is used, an entire chapter is devoted to reviewing and revising those necessary building blocks of communication. Each chapter has been revamped to provide more helpful examples and workable assignments to aid the reader in applying the skills acquired.
Other chapters include:
· Description and interpretation
· Comparison and contrast
· Exhortation and argumentation
· Exam preparation
· Research and references
Writing English with style is aimed at first-year college students, but will be equally valuable to the final year or postgraduate second language speaker.
