This book has been a useful tool to prevent me from ever having to hear that again This book is definitely a jewel that I would recommend to anyone who has to write academically " - Amazon user

If you know the basics of academic writing but struggle to express your ideas using the right words, The Only Academic Phrasebook You'll Ever Need is a lifesaver. This book is a short, reader-friendly bank of academic "sentence templates" written for both graduate and undergraduate students who need help with their essays, dissertations, and theses. Students preparing for the TOEFL and IELTS exams will find this book useful, too.

The Only Academic Phrasebook You'll Ever Need contains 600 sentence frames organized around the typical sections of an academic paper, such as:
  • The aim of this study is to discuss the extent to which ____
  • Participants were randomly selected based on ____
  • The data provide preliminary evidence that ____
The Only Academic Phrasebook You'll Ever Need also contains 80 grammar and vocabulary tips so you can avoid common mistakes in academic writing:
  • What's the difference between effect and affect? Imply and infer?
  • Is irregardless correct?
  • Do you say "the criteria was" or "the criteria were"?

The Only Academic Phrasebook You'll Ever Need is NOT a comprehensive academic writing textbook. It will NOT teach you academic skills such as choosing the right research question, writing clear paragraphs, and so on.

But it will help you find the best way to say what you want to say so you can ace that academic paper and get the grade you deserve.
