Practical Writing is for students who need to use written English both in their studies and in their personal life. Whether they are writing a descriptive essay for their teacher or sending a text to a friend, Practical Writing helps them structure their message, select the right vocabulary and choose the most appropriate style.

Practical Writing covers text types that students need to produce at school: for and against essays and short reports (both IELTS Writing tasks) as well as descriptive essays. One unit helps them to take notes efficiently and another helps them to understand and avoid plagiarism. The program also covers the writing they need in their daily life, whether it’s texting their friends, emailing their teachers or writing formal letters to the bank or the immigration authorities.
