Read an Excerpt

ESL Intermediate/Advanced Writing is the perfect companion text to ESL Intermediate/ Advanced Grammar.  This guide has been designed to simply and clearly elevate students’ understanding and mastery of the English written word. The progressive approach employed in the book helps students move through the instruction and exercises at a moderate pace, mastering one concept before moving to the next, ultimately passing from the intermediate to the advanced level.  Student writers will be guided from creating complete sentences to paragraphs, then to developing fully-realized essays.
 
            At the intermediate level, students review the forms of sentence structure: simple, compound, and complex.  Along the way they learn to distinguish between correct sentences and sentence fragments.  By working on a variety of activities, students will improve their skills with parallel structure and mood, while correcting shifting errors and dangling participles. 
 
            The advanced level concentrates on writing different kinds of essays, such as narrative, descriptive, process, reaction, and comparison and contrast.  This section also presents writing samples of both students and professionals expressing ideas about everyday topics and themes, some of which provide non-native speakers with insight into American life and culture. 
 
            While ESL Intermediate/Advanced Writing is intended for advanced high school or college/university non-native speakers who are preparing to learn and enhance their English written communication skills, this book also serves as an excellent tool for native speakers who seek to further their writing mastery through self-study or test preparation.  Both levels will benefit from the grammar explanations that are interspersed throughout to enhance key writing practices and improve overall writing.
