This fully updated 2012 edition of English for Academic Study: Extended Writing & Research Skills will help develop the practical skills you need to tackle extended essays and projects and encourage the development of an independent approach to studying.
 
The units are organized as follows:

  • Using evidence to support your ideas
  • Sourcing information for your project
  • Developing your project
  • Developing a focus
