Product description

Review

"...one of the strengths of these books is that the tasks go beyond the 'usual' and really give the student practice at other essential university level reading skills, such as analysing the text for purpose, reading recall, annotating, comparing two texts, and reading with a focus question in mind. The wide variety of skills and tasks presented requires the students to read and reread the texts, getting the most out of every page. And, if students find they need even more practice, there is a dedicated website for both students and teachers with links to additional websites for the skills practised. All in all, this reading course book is ideal for someone who has a high English level and now wants to learn the skills and strategies necessary to be an efficient and effective reader at college level." Hilary Livingstone for IATEFL Voices, Issue 238, May-June 2014 "This high-quality series presents teaching materials underpinned by the latest research and honed by classroom feedback. Designed for teaching reading and writing either separately or in an integrated way (with the Source Book being essential for either option), it will help students develop important skills for tertiary settings in either case." Patrick Coleman (Lincoln University) for the TESOLANZ newsletter, September 2014

His work continues to take him to various areas of the globe. John is currently piloting a book of preparation materials for the Test of English for Educational Purposes and is planning further publications on Academic Reading and Language Testing. Currently, his responsibilities in testing include test administration and writing. He has been an item writer for Cambridge ESOL for a number of years and is regional team leader on a marking panel. Anne Pallant authored the Writing volume in Garnet Education's EAS series. Anne has varied experience of teaching English for Academic Purposes. She has been teaching on EAP courses at the Centre for Applied Language Studies since 1994 and is part of the EAP Management team. She was also Director of Studies at a Language School in Italy.

Whilst Anne is interested in the teaching of all skills within EAP courses, her current focus is on the teaching of academic writing skills and the development of appropriate materials and methodology. She is especially interested in the teaching of critical thinking skills in academic writing. Anne is also concerned with the teaching of study and research skills to prospective postgraduate students, and developing methods and materials through which the needs of students from different disciplines can be met in one classroom. She is also interested in teaching content-based courses and is presently involved in teaching writing to scientists and social scientists by electronic delivery and 'e-learning' methodology.
