Look Inside


This workbook accompanies the 2nd Edition of The ESL Writer’s Handbook (ISBN: 978-0-472-03707-0).  The Workbook extends the topics covered in the Handbook to enable a teacher to use the books as the core texts in an advanced ESL writing or first-year undergraduate composition course. The teacher may wish to assign Workbook exercises as homework or use them in class with the exercises in the Handbook.
The new edition of the Workbook includes 85 exercises to facilitate students’ understanding of some of the most complex or troublesome writing areas discussed in the Handbook. Exercises have been revised, and new exercises have been added to Sections 4 (Research Paper) and 5 (Grammar and Style).
