Abstract

This presentation described the development of academic writing materials based on findings from the British Academic Written English (BAWE) corpus. The materials are genre- and discipline-specific; they aim to raise teachers' and learners' awareness of the types of writing produced by students studying at university level in the medium of English, and to improve the quality of student writing, especially the writing produced by users of English as a second or a foreign language.
