This is my second academic writing skills workbook. It contains questions and answers on topics to improve academic English writing skills. The questions are typical of those used in exams for an English diploma for university entrance. These practical writing exercise support my previous three “Academic Writing Skills” series books: 1. "Learn English Paragraph Writing Skills" 2. "Practical Academic Essay Writing Skills" 3. "The 5 Step Essay Writing Process" The exercise groups cover grammar areas such as capitals, commas, sentence structure and errors, and subject/verb agreement required for confident academic English writing skills. As well as the common grammar questions, there are questions to improve essay writing skills such as topic and supporting sentences, unity, coherence, and examples of transition signals. I would recommend ESL Students in low-intermediate to low-advanced English classes use this workbook for developing their academic English writing skills.

Since the publication of the first edition in 2002, there have been two major developments in L2 writing and peer response teaching and research. The first is the increased interest in CALL and computer-mediated communication (CMC) for L2 pedagogy; the second is the accessibility and viability of research on L2 peer response from all over the world. Both developments are thoroughly addressed in this new edition. Now that classes are as likely to be online as held in physical classrooms and now that a new generation of digital natives can routinely read and respond to what others write via laptops, tablets, and phones, peer response as pedagogical practice is not just more easily implemented, but it is more likely to feel natural to L2 learners. The Second Edition is a highly accessible guide to how the world is using peer response and serves as a motivator and facilitator for those who want to try it for the first time or want to increase the effectiveness of the activities—whether via CMC or not. The volume includes 11 forms useful in training students to provide good peer feedback, including a final checklist to ensure teachers have taken all the necessary steps to achieve a successful peer feedback activity.

Contemporary research into written academic discourse has become increasingly polarised between two approaches: corpus linguistics and discourse analysis. This volume presents a selection of recent work by experts in academic written discourse, and illustrates how corpus linguistics and discourse analysis can work as complementary approaches. The overall introduction sets the volume against the backdrop of current work in English for Academic Purposes, and introductions to the each section draw out connections between the chapters and put them into context. The contributors are experts in the field and they cover both novice and expert examples of EAP. The book ends with an afterword that provides an agenda-setting closing perspective on the future of EAP research. It will appeal to reserachers and postgrduates in applied linguistics, corpus linguistics, discourse analysis and EAP.
