    Basic English for College

    Emy Pascasio, Lourdes Dalupan, Apricinia Fernandez, Carol Nunez, Jennifer Que

    Winner, Gintong Aklat Award, Textbook, 1998
    This book contains selected texts that provide rich and interesting materials relevant to the college classroom. The primary aim of the book is to develop the student’s academic language skills necessary in pursuing college studies. Academic language is often complex, requiring manipulation of difficult concepts, especially in the content subjects. Moreover, it is both decontextualized and high in cognitive complexity. College students should therefore be equipped with language-learning strategies to improve their listening and reading comprehension, as well as their ability to compose effective paragraphs.
