WRITING aims to prepare students for Paper 2 (Writing) of the revised Cambridge English Proficiency examination, both by enriching their language skills and offering ample practice in all the writing tasks.

Each unit is both task and topic based, and contains the following features:

  • Oral work
    At the beginning of each lesson, candidates are given the opportunity to discuss the general topic of the unit, thus preparing for the written work to come.
  • Vocabulary exercises
    Through these, students will enhance and expand their language skills and build up a knowledge of the advanced vocabulary required at this level.
  • Error correction exercises
    In every unit there is a special focus on error correction. Students are thus alerted to the most common mistakes made by foreigners learning English.
  • Task analysis
    Candidates are offered invaluable guidance in analysing typical exam tasks and understanding exactly what is required of them.
  • Models
    Model pieces of writing (report, letter, review, essay, etc.) and related exercises highlight what learners need to be aware of in order to fulfil the requirements of the writing section of the exam.
  • Plans
    For each piece of writing students will attempt, they are supplied with a straightforward plan to encourage them to organise their ideas in an appropriate way.

WRITING is a systematic approach to teaching writing skills at an advanced level, which at the same time familiarises students with the format of the revised Cambridge English Proficiency examination.
