The kindle version allows you to create your own flip flashcards to study and revise what you've learned. Easy to buy and download. A must-have.
Practical and comprehensive. This book will improve the level of any writing, especially academic essays, helping the writer develop a more fluent, sophisticated and appropriate discourse. Gap-fill exercises should help access existing knowledge and challenge your brain. The examples and explanations that follow will clarify and broaden anyone's repertoire. I wish this book had been published when I was struggling to write my MA essays and dissertation.
This ebook offers an awesome help to all students out there who need to engage in academic writing and are having problems with it. This is certainly not a long, boring, theoretical book. On the contrary, it is a brief, to the point kind of material that shows you exactly what expressions you should or not use and why. It is obviously a must-have for writing teachers as well!
Luiz Otávio's book offers a wide variety of expressions, specific vocabulary and examples of collocation that make it an indispensable tool when writing in English for academic purposes. Indeed it is very useful for anyone interested in the English language. Helena Morgan
I can fully recommend this practical book, especially to academic researchers. It is great for looking up the right vocabulary to express yourself clearly in English. There are also exercises you can do such as finding common errors in a sentence. Overall, an excellent resource for academics.
Comprei o livro com a capa anterior. Para quem precisa escrever trabalhos acadêmicos desde o mais simples artigo até sua própria monografia. Sei que cada linha do livro foi pensada e repensadas com muita genialidade - como tudo que o Luiz Otávio barros escreve. :)
