This volume brings together a selection of current strategies in the studying of English as a Second Language (ESL) and English as a Foreign Language (EFL) from the perspectives of modern linguistic theory and praxis. Educators from various different countries examine current methods of English language learning in a global environment in which it has become a contemporary lingua franca. Several chapters in the book are taken from the session “ESL Studies” held at the 111th PAMLA (Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association) conference. This volume discusses issues connected with the study of English as a second language by students from various different countries, such as Australia, the European Union, Italy, the Russian Federation, and the USA, and with several different native languages, such as Arabic, Italian, Russian, and Spanish. The chapters form a rich mosaic of interconnecting themes, highlighting the diversity of present-day processes of teaching ESL throughout the world.

English Writing Exercise for Second Language Learners An English Grammar workbook for ESL Students (Book II) This is the second workbook for my academic English writing classes. It contains questions and answers on topics associated to developing and improving your academic English writing skills. The questions are typical of those asked in exams for an English diploma for university entrance. These writing exercises are practical exercises to help support my previous three "Academic Writing Skills" series books: "Learn English Paragraph Writing Skills - Paragraph Essentials for ESL Students" "Practical Academic Essay Writing Skills - Essay Essentials for ESL Students" "The 5 Step Essay Writing Process - English Essay Writing Skills for ESL Students" "English Writing Exercises for International Students - English Grammar Workbook for English Writing" The 20 exercise groups with more than 200 questions cover grammar areas required for fluent and confident academic English writing skills. They include: General theory Sentence errors: Fragments, Run ons, and Comma splices Capitalization Commas Sentence combining Appositives Sentence Structure: Simple, Compound, and Complex Subject / Verb agreement As well as the common grammar questions, I have included questions to aid in improving paragraph and essay writing skills. These include: Topic sentences Supporting sentences Quotations Paragraph Unity Paragraph Coherence Prepositional phrases Some 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. As I said in my last book, "Academic essay writing is an essential skill for universities, colleges, and other tertiary educational institutions. Moreover, English writing skills form a part of the assessment requirements of many courses at university, college, or even high school." Thus, I believe it is extremely important you can do all these various kinds of English writing exercises to become a competent academic English writer for university. I sincerely hope you find some value in the questions and fun in answering a combination of multiple choice and written answers. The best part is you get immediate feedback whether you are right or wrong through the answer key. The whole idea is to help you learn more, as well as, have fun learning. Write your way to a BA.
