Product description

Product Description

Overview

Think Writer teaches the basics of Business Writing - the kind needed for business letters, memoranda and reports; also for examinations and essays. Based on numerous composition-teaching works (notably William J. Kerrigan's Writing to the Point: Six Basic Steps) and on several years of trialling in business settings and in academia. The course deals with writing problems systematically.

Each unit focuses on a specific aspect of coherence or cohesion (the forces which hold language together and create good readability), and builds clarity through numerous examples and exercises.

Learners working their way through the course will learn to order their thoughts more effectively and so communicate more clearly in writing. They will become better thinkers and writers.

Evaluations

Len Lanham
Professor of Linguistics at Rhodes University and The University of the Witwatersrand.

(Prof. Lanham is the acknowledged father of South African Linguistics, Applied Linguistics, ESL and University Academic Support Programmes. His work on Phonetics is internationally recognized.)

… I am very impressed with your Think Writer. It really is original – I’ve not seen anything like it before. There is no doubt that what you are promoting is of crucial importance.

We are working closely with your book in The Molteno Project, trying in our new course to help learners to be “coherent and cohesive”. At the moment I am particularly interested in the piece on “Child Prodigies”. It is a very clear example of developing a whole, multi-topic sentence in following support sentences, which do not omit any aspect.
