The Writing Centre

Improving Writing Skills is designed specifically for first year university students; it can also be used both as a reference and practice book by more advanced students.

The combination of selected reference lessons and graded practice exercises in grammar, mechanics and sentence structure makes this book suitable for a writing course.  These selected lessons provide the learners with the linguistic tools necessary for the writing process, and the graded tasks give them the opportunity to manipulate various grammatical structures effectively, thus allowing them to improve gradually their linguistic and communicative skills. 



Improving Writing Skills

» Graded practice exercises afford a gradual shift from simple to more complex language forms.

»  Additional review tests after each part offer extra practice of various language points.

»  Appendices deal with correction symbols with examples that serve as quick reference for the editing phase, commonly confused words, and         contractions

«  …Doté d’une voix propre à lui, quasi intimiste, ce recueil répond avec émotion à des questionnements profonds liés aussi bien au cœur, au corps, à l’âme, qu’à l’être. Lecteur de grands poetes  et héritier d’une tradition poétique plurilingue (oscillant entre T.S.Eliot, P.Larkin, P.Valéry et N.Parra), l’auteur exprime, ici, des sentiments sincères et des aspirations, parfois gidiennes, légitimées par le temps – en particulier le non-acti- et le contexte. Abbès Bahous fait, ici, trembler la langue, éclairer la conscience, et user des mots pour que jaillisse carpe diem

Schema, Discourse and Language Teaching: an Introduction is a brief survey intended for readers new to the formal study of language in general. It introduces schemata, what people in a particular community regard as normal and predictable ways of organizing the world and communicating with others. The author provides a succinct but lucid outline of the ways schemata have been defined, described, and explored, and illustrates basic concepts related not only to schema theory, but also to discourse, language in use. Then, studies the consequences such theory might have on foreign language teaching, English in particular. The book ends up with stressing the importance of not only the pragmatic discourse in the acquisition of a foreign language and how it is schematically related to culture and society, but also the pragmatic relevance of the act of learning a foreign language   outside the classroom world.
