Writing Skills provides learners with problem-solving activities based on a wide variety of text types. The activities give practice in using specific items of language and in developing the ability to organise information. Text types covered are: letters (both informal and formal), reports, brochures, journalistic articles, instructions and stories. In all cases, emphasis is placed on group work, and substantial opportunities and ideas for further practice are given throughout. The Teacher's Book contains notes and a key, as well as comprehensive explanations of the rationale behind the exercises.
