LEARNING WRITING THROUGH DISCOURSE ANALYSIS
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper we try to analyze some genres of written discourse to unveil the common patterns of academic writing for English students in advance university courses. The disappearance of the term Philology in the studies of languages has made scholars and teachers shift the methodology of teaching languages. In this new scenario, the instrumental part of each language comes to the foreground of teaching and learning. Within this state of affairs, the competence of writing is one of the most important elements for students to master, as they have to prove their competence and skills in an academic environment. By comparing a variety of samples, students learn to improve their writing and adapt their knowledge to different social and academic purposes. The goal is to present an approach in which proficient L2 learners become more independent, learning to research, analyze and assess the texts of a certain culture and apply their knowledge of discourse to their own writing.
