You must log in to view sessions Writing College & University Education Research-Oriented Long Presentation

Focusing on IELTS Academic Writing research, this talk will consider the challenges students face both as they prepare for IELTS in their own country, and as they take part in UK postgraduate courses. By exploring two case studies (Japan/China) we will look at ways teachers can adapt their lessons to help students in the longer term, beyond the test.
