Session 02: IELTS Preparation Workshop

Summary: Today, we focused on your first Cambridge English Write & Improve essay in your breakout sessions in pairs with individual support for the teacher:

Writing Academic English at Saitama University: The reasons you taking this Academic Essay Writing (AEW1) course

Please use these question prompts to help you with a 200-250 word essay.​
What kind of academic essay writing have you done so far in English?
What is puzzling for you about academic essay writing (i.e., what questions do you have about academic writing)? 
Which specific writing concepts/skills do you most want to develop in this quarter? Why? How? Please explain in detail, giving clear reasons. 

You can still review the guidance of Write & Improve, and revise the essay again and again as many times you like to get a higher score by the end of the first quarter.
