Back About Skillful is a five-level course taking students from foundation to advanced. Skillful not only provides the tools for academic success but creates an interactive learning environment which encapsulates student debate.
There would be no surprise to find out that Skillful follows a skills-based approach.
What is refreshing, however, is that each unit has been carefully compiled to encourage students to think more laterally about the English language, their studies, and the world around them.
The second, and longer text has more detail so necessitates the student to think more, requiring them to engage fully with the associated tasks. Skillful provides a strong focus on study skills supplying students with practical guidance and support, touching on new life skills such as time management, organization and preparation, while building confidence for independent learning throughout their university career.
In every other unit, the last page presents an example scenario about a student, and asks the reader to think critically about whether they demonstrated success or showed a need for improvement.
