Abstract

In this study, we gathered data from a cohort of undergraduate student volunteers over a semester. The cohort was made up mainly of second language speakers with a small proportion of native speakers of English. We wanted to investigate a specific difficulty that we had perceived in students’ academic writing and from the results of this investigation to design remedies.
