Study Reading is a course for learners of intermediate level or above who need to develop their reading skills for study purposes. It is ideal for students working on their own, and contains a detailed answer key.
The book is divided into three parts. Part 1 introduces basic reading skills. Part 2 is theme based, with texts from a variety of disciplines, and aims to extend the skills introduced in Part 1. Part 3 covers the reading skills required for project, dissertation and thesis work.
By doing a variety of task-based, problem-solving activities – and through direct advice - learners are encouraged to refine their reading strategies through exposure to the ideas of others. The Second Edition of Study Reading includes more recent texts in the academic disciplines represented and also takes account of new media, including on-line resources. Activities are also included for IELTS practice.
