Study Skills for Language Students Reviews


What they said about 'Study Skills for Geography Students': Of value throughout a degree programme. Every student should buy a copy.
Dr G. P. Hollier, University of Strathclyde, UK

I would recommend this book warmly to students, but even more so to staff seeking guidance on how to help their students improve their generic learning skills, particularly in some of the 'newer' study skills.
Journal of European Area Studies.
