English for Academic Study: Writing

This fully updated 2012 edition of English for Academic Study: Writing will help you develop the academic writing skills you need to deal effectively with the written element of your academic study, as well as to develop other important skills such as reading research and critical thinking.

The units are organized as follows:

  • Introduction to academic writing
  • Sustainable energy
  • The business of science
  • Telemedicine
  • Food security
  • Human resource management
  • Sustainable fashion
  • The Tipping Point

Each unit explores a key aspect of writing and teaches it in the context of a specific topic area, e.g., Food security and Sustainable fashion. The tasks in each unit prepare you to write an essay that will consolidate the writing skills you are learning. Authentic texts in the accompanying Reading & Writing Source Book provide useful and interesting background information for each topic area covered. The Course Book includes unit summaries to give you a quick overview of what you have covered, and a comprehensive glossary of terms. Each unit also has weblinks offering additional information and activities, relating to both writing skills and the topics covered in the units. 

This book can be used in conjunction with the following books in the English for Academic Study (EAS) series, also published by Garnet Education: EAS: Reading & Writing Source Book, EAS: Reading, EAS: Extended Writing & Research Skills, EAS: Listening, EAS: Speaking, EAS: Vocabulary and EAS: Pronunciation.
