Review quote

'I am still unable to locate any similar texts aimed at the international student market.' - Ann Wakefield, University of Manchester, UK 'Written in a generic way, the authors show a keen awareness of the many difficulties faced by international students. What makes this book accessible, despite its ambitious coverage, is its clear language and presentation.' - Siew Hean Read, Language Consultant, English Language Self-Access Centre, University of Auckland
