A three-level (B1+ to C1) integrated skills course for higher education students at university or on foundation courses. The B2 Upper Intermediate Student's Book gives students further practice in academic study skills. Students analyse characteristics of written and spoken academic texts, develop awareness of academic culture and learn to avoid plagiarism. From essay organisation, taking notes, group discussion to writing references and paraphrasing texts, the students are presented with a wealth of practice opportunities to enhance all academic skills. The course develops independent learning skills and critical thinking through 'Study Tips' sections and allows for personalisation of learning in the 'Focus on your subject' sections. Five lecture skills units provide authentic practice in listening to lectures and note-taking.
