Headway Academic Skills can be used independently, or alongside a general English coursebook such as New Headway or New Headway Plus.
Designed for students moving on to academic studies or for those on a foundation programme, the series focuses on improving students' academic skills by:
-Developing the specific skills required for academic studies through a wide range of topics relevant to higher education.
-Exploring strategies to help students with new vocabulary, and to record, vary, and build their vocabulary.
-Offering guidance in undertaking research, and in acknowledging sources.
-Providing plenty of guided practice as well as freer practice to encourage learner independence.
