You should now have an understanding of the key areas of language and grammar that are important for academic writing. You will have learnt: how to write in an impersonal way; about different language skills; and how to use different clause structures in academic writing.

Week 4 will look at the processes and stages of writing your own complete academic essay, and will cover the importance of preparation and writing a first draft.
