English Study Materials

You can find materials to help you at Language Development materials online. There is also a collection of useful books for English language study in the Fountains Learning Centre. The main sections to look at are on the First Floor:




Materials for learning English as a Foreign Language



Study skills (how to study better; how to write essays, reports, etc.)
378 Higher Education (University Life and Studies)

Graded readers to help improve your reading skills are on the second floor next to FT216. These books are all at different levels so please choose one which you feel confident reading, not one which is too hard for you. Reading will improve your vocabulary, your grammar and your writing.
