I use this text for my intermediate ESL writing class at a local community college. The focus of the course is to learn paragraph writing. This book doe s a thorough job of introducing steps to writing 6 types of stand-alone paragraphs, and it also includes sentence structure, grammar and punctuation rules. Many of the problems that students encounter when learning academic writing are addressed with explanations and exercises. I highly recommend this book.
