Writing in English at University: A Guide for Second Language Writers

Forskningsoutput: Bok/rapportBok


Writing is a central activity at university. Writing in English at University: A Guide for Second Language Writers is a textbook designed to accompany the MOOC Writing in English at University. It can also be used as a stand-alone handbook, with links to online resources, such as instructional videos on key aspects of academic writing provided throughout.
Just like the MOOC, this textbook targets university students currently involved in writing assignments or degree projects, as well as anyone wishing to learn more about academic writing in English. Although aimed at providing guidance and useful tips and tricks to all students and writers, it has been developed specifically with learners in mind who are writing essays and research papers in second-language environments and whose native language is not English.

Writing in English at University: A Guide for Second Language Writers covers central aspects of academic writing in English with a specific focus on:
- common terms and concepts that all writers need to be aware of
- ways of organising and structuring a text
- how to read and make use of sources and previous research
- practical advice on issues that second-language writers often encounter when working on their texts

The MOOC Writing in English at University and this textbook were developed at the English Unit, Centre for Languages and Literature, Lund University.
