ADVANCED WRITING SKILLS incorporates new concepts for teaching students writing at an advanced level. Language is treated under the three headings of functions, topic notionsand grammar, with the aim of training the students to express themselves clearly and accurately, particularly in writing.The material is suitable for intensive and non-intensive courses and a key is provided for the use of students working on their own. It therefore provides the teacher with material suitable for many different learning situations.
Like its companion volume Advanced Writing Skills, the present book focuses on the needs of the learner at the advanced level. At this level, grammatical accuracy alone is simply not enough for successful communication, particularly in speech. Advanced Speaking Skills takes as its keynote the concept of appropriateness - the choice of language according to such factors as to whom one is speaking, the moods of the speakers, etc. The book thus opens up to the advanced learner the opportunity of better reflecting his own attitudes and reacting to those of others.
Practical Everyday English: Advanced Vocabulary, Phrasal Verbs, Idioms and Expressions
The Practical Everyday English: a self study method of spoken English for upper-intermediate and advanced students book 1 is specifically designed for foreign students of English who already have a good grammatical basis in the language. Unlike a dictionary, this book actually teaches you how and when to use the words by giving true-to-life examples, entertaining dialogue and useful exercises. The book will be of particular benefit to those readers with an advanced level of English who wish to become (or who already are) interpreters, translators or teachers of English, or who simply want to be able to speak and understand English at a very high level.
This book is intended to develop composition skills. These include producing and developing ideas, choosing and using the most effective forms of expression and checking and improving drafts. Model texts are introduced after the students have tried to do a piece of writing so that the model becomes a resource against which students can compare their own texts and from which they can improve what they have written. There is an Introduction to the teacher and answers where appropriate.
