What is a study journal? How could it help you?

If you want help with academic writing then use the Academic Phrasebank from the University of Manchester or Academic English Online from Queen Mary University. Remember to use these phrases to give you ideas to improve your own writing. Don’t just copy and paste, because you’ll never learn that way!

You could also refer to a Thesaurus to find synonyms and increase your vocabulary. But always remember to use an English to English dictionary. No translation!

Learn how to write a summary…

Learn how to paraphrase…

How do we use colons and semi-colons?

Just for fun, how many punctuation marks can you see here…
