Overview

Why do students feel that mastering academic English is difficult? Is it really so different from other types of English? The authors present academic English as a particular type of English that is not necessarily better, fancier, or harder; rather, it is simply a different kind of English that is usually learned in scholastic settings after general English has been acquired. This easy-to-follow guide shows how learning academic language can be achieved by developing a set of skills that can be honed with practice, effective instruction, and motivation.
