Skills in English Writing Level 2 Teacher's Book The Garnet Education Skills in English series was highly commended in the Duke of Edinburgh English Speaking Union English Language Book Award in 2004. This course is part of the Skills in English series from Garnet Education. It is designed to help students to cope with writing assignments in English requiring between five and ten well-structured paragraphs. At Level 2, students learn how to: * write an introduction; * write a topic sentence; * link sentences; * use pronouns; * give an opinion; * state reasons; * compare things; * and write a narrative. In addition, students acquire key vocabulary in the following thematic areas: * Education * Daily Life * Work and Business * Science and Nature * Physical World * Culture and Civilization * They Made Our World * Art and Literature * Sports and Leisure * Nutrition and Health. Key features of this Teacher's Book are: * a facsimile of the related Course Book page, for ease of reference; * an introduction to the approach taken in the course; * lesson-by-lesson notes; * a full answer key, including model answers where appropriate; * language and culture notes, where these will assist the teacher in understanding learning difficulties or confusions of the target students; * methodology notes, where the value of an exercise, or the way to conduct it, may not be self-evident. As well as preparing students for entry into English-medium study, the Skills in English Course is ideal for students who wish to improve their scores in skills-based examinations for university entry requirements, such as the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Rather than focusing on exam preparation, Skills in English teaches the necessary skills as part of a systematic programme of language development. Skills in English courses are also available in Listening, Speaking and Reading. See the Skills in English website at skillsinenglish.com for additional materials and help. Key Features * Reading texts a maximum of 500 words * Listening texts a maximum of 800 words * Speaking tasks up to five paragraphs, with writing assignments between five and ten well-structured paragraphs * Test booklets containing theme tests, a revision test after five units, plus an end-of-course test * Teacher's Book containing full answer keys, methodology notes and transcript of listening material * Language and culture notes available for Arabic, Chinese and Japanese learners Accompanying Course Book, Student Test Pack and Teacher Test Booklet also available.

Terry Phillips has worked in ELT for more than 35 years as a teacher, teaching supervisor, manager and language school owner. As a consultant, he has worked in more than 20 countries in all parts of the world, advising state and private language institutions on all aspects of school management. For the last ten years, he has been a full time freelance writer with his wife Anna, producing more than 160 published books in ELT. Although he and Anna have worked for all the major publishers, all recent works have been for Garnet Education, including the multi-level EAP course, Skills in English. The course was highly commended in The Duke of Edinburgh's English Speaking Union Award for 2004. It is taught in a large number of universities in the UK and around the world. Terry and Anna are currently working on New Skills in English, a fully revised and updated version of the course. Terry is also the series editor of the new English for Specific Academic Purposes series for Garnet Education, which aims to prepare students to entry into a particular faculty for English-medium tertiary education. The series recently won the ESU award. Anna Phillips has worked in ELT for more than 30 years. She has worked as a teacher of both multilingual and monolingual classes, with teenagers and adults, in both the UK and abroad. Anna began writing materials for special courses as a senior teacher working for the British Council in Oman. Later, as Director of Studies and Owner-Manager of the International House school in Oman, she spent much of her time adapting and developing materials, owing to the lack of suitable course books for the needs of the students. During this period Anna was also extensively involved in teacher training, both in-service and also for CELTA and DELTA. She was also an examiner for CELTA and travelled extensively throughout the Gulf region in this role. In 1989 Anna completed her MA (TEFL) from Reading University. Since returning to the UK, Anna has worked with Terry Phillips on a large number of textbooks for a variety of publishers. Most recently, she and Terry have been working on the Skills in English series. Anna's particular interest is making course books more 'user friendly' for teachers who are not native speakers of English, and so she has been very much involved in developing resources for the teachers using the UAE version of Skills in English. Anna is currently working on New Skills in English, a completely revised and extended version of the current series.
