English for Academic Study Grammar for Writing - Study Book
English for Academic Study: Grammar for Writing English for Academic Study: Grammar for Writing is a graded self-study course that will help students improve their academic writing. It will build their confidence in understanding and using grammar for written assignments, so they can write accurate English and communicate more effectively in academic contexts. EAS: Grammar for Writing starts at a relatively low level, recognizing that many students require continuing practice of common grammatical problems in academic writing (such as subject-verb agreement, or the use of present simple and present continuous)., It gradually increases the level of challenge so that by the end of the book students can use appropriate grammatical structures to express more complex academic ideas. The nine units are based on the following topics: * Starting out * Information flow within a text * Looking back (past simple and present perfect) * Showing logical links (1) * Showing logical links (2) * Expressing shades of meaning * Expressing condition * Avoiding person-based writing * Using relative clauses Each unit is divided into three stages, moving from basic structures to more complex ones. Full explanations and examples are followed by extensive practice exercises., Many exercises use examples from student essays, so students can identify typical problems and work out how to put them right. Each unit also includes an end-of-unit self-check test to give students a quick overview of what they have covered. There are four useful appendices on: articles, describing data, referring to academic sources, and a sample student essay., A full answer key is available here. The dedicated EAS website also provides additional resources across the range of titles in the series. This book can be used in conjunction with the following books in the English for Academic Studies (EAS) series, also published by Garnet Education: EAS: Reading, EAS: Writing, EAS: Extended Writing & Research Skills, EA
