Longman Academic Writing Series

Writing is a journey. Without proper knowledge it can turn into a tiresome and frustrating nightmare. But with a good grasp on the dos and don’ts of it, it turns into a very enjoyable experience. It doesn’t have to begin in upper-intermediate or advanced levels in the life of a language learner; it can start at the very early stages of a learner’s learning process.

Academic writing poses far too many challenges; it can be confusing to figure out, and  it may even be more difficult to put ideas together and form a writing piece that is more than just “satisfactory”.  To put together such a masterpiece, each and

every brick needs to be put in the right place at the right time; it also needs to be in harmony with the rest of the block. Then, these blocks will need to come together perfectly in order to form a writing masterpiece.

Longman Academic Writing Series is designed to help learners master the art of academic writing. The series consists of five different books, each for one of the stages of CEFR.  The series starts with the basics of sentence writing and adds the finishing touches by going through the principles of research paper writing.

The series is a carefully crafted one that offers more than just rules and exercises. It offers guidance, samples and appendixes that offer a better insight into different aspects of language. The units are colorful and beautifully designed,  and make sure that you are never bored and always interested when going through the tasks in each and every one of the units.

If you’re planning to take part in an exam that asks for your solid knowledge of academic writing.
