Higher Standard Writing in English

It is a tantalizing job to teach the bilingual students to pass the English Regents Examination and the College Writing Test because they only have 2 or 3 years of ESL background that is equivalent to the 4th grade English proficiency level in the elementary school. However, I have been doing it for years to train them how to write with the grammatical structure and drill them on summarizing a fiction or drama, responding to a critical lens, comparing two controlling ideas of any 2 passages or books and rounding up a commentary upon completion of a book or an article.Higher Standard Writing in English focuses on the Eight Parts of Speech, the use of tenses and the formation of simple, complex and compound sentences. No matter how well organized and authentic an essay is written in the test, 2 or 3 major structural errors may lead to disqualification of the paper. Let students recognize the standardized writing skills and command writing through the proper English language technicality framework to express whatever they want. -Peter S. H. Lee, Author

"Ich zog in die Wälder, weil ich den Wunsch hatte, mit Überlegung zu leben, alle Wirkenskraft und Samen zu schauen und zu ergründen, ob ich nicht lernen könnte, was ich lehren sollte, um beim Sterben vor der Entdeckung bewahrt zu bleiben, daß ich nicht gelebt hatte." Thoreau beschreibt in seinem Buch die zwei Jahre, die er allein in einer selbstgebauten Blockhütte am Waldteich "Walden" in Massachusetts verbringt. Er beschreibt sein Leben in den Wäldern, das einfache Leben und wie er sich durch den Anbau von Gemüse und Getreide und durch den Fischfang selbst versorgt und wie er die Natur für sich wahrnimmt. Für ihn ist es der Versuch, ein Leben zu führen, das ihm dem eigentlichen und wirklichen Leben näher bringt. Überarbeiteter Nachdruck der Originalausgabe aus dem Jahr 1905.

Collocations in a Learner Corpus

Collocations are both pervasive in language and difficult for language learners, even at an advanced level. In this book, these difficulties are for the first time comprehensively investigated. On the basis of a learner corpus, idiosyncratic collocation use by learners is uncovered, the building material of learner collocations examined, and the factors that contribute to the difficulty of certain groups of collocations identified. An extensive discussion of the implications of the results for the foreign language classroom is also presented, and the contentious issue of the relation of corpus linguistic research and language teaching is thus extended to learner corpus analysis.
