Get Set for English Language

Paperback / softback Age range: 22+ years old Publication Date: 21/03/2003

The transition between school and university is not an easy one. There are unfamiliar subjects to be studied and even familiar subjects are approached in new ways. The pace of learning is much faster, the volume of written work increases and all the deadlines seem to come at once. And then there are the exams. This series of books aims to bridge the gap by introducing subjects as they are taught at university; providing some time management strategies; suggesting how to get the most out of lectures and tutorials; showing how to write an essay to university standards; and taking some of the agony out of exams. This volume assumes no prior knowledge of the subject. For students who have never studied the English language before, it should give an idea of what to expect. For students already studying the English language at school, it should provide a concise but comprehensive learning aid. Part one covers core subjects taught in the first year of most English language degrees. Topics include: phonetics and phonology; vocabulary; inflectional morphology; syntax; the history of English; regional and social variation; language change; and language and poetry.
Part two tackles the study skills needed at university level and discusses issues such as lectures, tutorials and seminars; writing skills; essays and dissertations; and examinations. Learning tools include a sample degree exam paper and a sample essay answer.
