The Keys to Academic English is an essential resource for anyone undertaking study that requires an understanding and appreciation of academic English. It is the product of 3 years of development and successful implementation at the authors' university. The book starts with an introduction to the history of English and the forms of language and then goes on to guide the reader on how to plan and produce a successful essay. The book consists of two texts; a student text and a tutor support 'manual' with subject resources, exercises, subject frame and assessment-rubric templates. The text is not subject-specific and as such it can be used across a broad range of teaching disciplines and has no single philosophical tradition or frame. Key features: Provides an overview of the English Language so that students can understand many of the complex systems at work in English grammar, spelling and usage; Contains an introduction to language theories which allows students to develop an appreciation and knowledge of the ways in which registers, particularly the academic register, contain great potential for power; Discussion questions are incorporated into the book to promote learning and understanding of the concepts discussed and a glossary is included at the end of the book for common terms and language for ease of reference.
