'Calling all lecturers: your jobs depend on books like this. You know that international students are a vital source of money for UK universities. Many of your masters courses - the ones you really enjoy teaching - would collapse tomorrow without students from around the world. This book is about how to help these students succeed.' - Times Higher Education 'A superb book which contains a wealth of ideas and strategies for use in the EAP classroom or for self-study. It should be compulsory reading for any student seeking to enter Higher Education in an English-language speaking country' - Alison Standring, EAP Co-ordinator, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) 'Read, Research, Write definitely fills a gap... It is comprehensive, accessible and expertly researched and written, covering many essential aspects of academic competence. Equally useful as a course book, a resource book in a class library or as a reference book for students, every EAP teacher will want a class copy, every ESL student starting higher education should keep it on their desk!' - Dr Roger Nunn, Senior Associate Editor, the Asian EFL Journal, Associate Professor in Communication, Petroleum Institute, Dubai 'Read, Research, Write takes a novel approach to combining language and content so as to balance discipline-specific and generic language development.
