`Strengthen Your Writing’ is an intensive course in writing that promotes the understanding and practice of the essential aspects of English composition and related study skills relevant to students at the intermediate and first-year degree levels. The book is designed to help students acquire and reinforce their writing skills in English in preparation for a successful academic and professional life. The revised edition includes a range of fresh texts based on themes that are modern as well as interesting. Skills not relevant or infrequently used have been omitted and new skills such as writing e-mail messages, memorandums and résumés, which are demanded of students today, have been introduced. There are well-explained models to illustrate different forms of writing as well as a large number of revised, contextualised exercises that provide students with sufficient opportunity for practice. Also included in the book are brief notes in shaded boxes on topics like bias-free writing and the use of parallel structure in composition, which would be of value to students aiming to improve their writing skills in English. Finally, the chapters in the new edition have been reorganised to lead students slowly from simple writing skills to more complex ones, and the book concludes with a unit that shows how graphics can be used effectively to supplement writing.
