In May, the winners of the annual ELTons awards were announced. Amongst the winners was the Academic Skills Series published by Collins. This is a six-book series for international students of all academic subjects who are studying, or preparing to study, at an English-speaking institution. Essential study skills and English language practice are combined to help students step up their performance from their IELTS or TOEFL score to achieve academic success on their course.
Each book stands alone, focusing on one skill required at university but they all follow an accessible series style which makes them easy to blend with other titles in the series. They work for self-study or classroom use.
“Now in their twelfth year, the annual awards, run by the British Council and sponsored by Cambridge English Language Assessment, are a celebration of innovation and excellence in English language teaching (ELT) from around the world.”
