Academic Writing: A Handbook for International Students 5e is simply organised, allowing ease of access for beginner writers and specially introducing them to the language needed to enter the conversations on academic writing. — Djuddah Leijen, University of Tartu, Estonia
Academic Writing is organized in a way that makes sense for teaching writing skills. The content includes a diverse body of samples from several fields, so it works brilliantly for my undergrad or graduate students. I especially like the section on common language errors, which comprises of extra practice for students; there is a suitable balance between writing instruction and discrete skill practice. It isn’t easy to find an ebook that addresses plagiarism in a way that is clear for students to understand, and this ebook does the job! — Ixchell Reyes, University of Southern California, USA
This ebook is an excellent example of inclusive teaching. It is intended primarily at international students, but reaches further, as it is equally helpful for British students and students who come from a more practice-focused background. It is also a strong companion to books on research methods that need a strong basis for academic skills. The accessible content, clear structure, and well-thought-through activities in this ebook, all give students the confidence to write effective academic work without the fear of breaking rules of academic malpractice or plagiarism. This is the ebook I recommend to all my students at the beginning of every academic year, independent of the subject I teach and the structure of my cohort. — Maria Lonsdale, University of Leeds, UK
