This book was written for ESL students whose written work looks like this:"It was a busy day at the store. She was a talk on the phone. She not want buy candy for child. He wasnt early his date, he buy eggs but his child she play." In this book, students progress slowly and methodically, with ample writing practice each step of the way. The book starts with the basics the difference between a word, sentence, and paragraph; the difference between a paragraph and a list; how to distinguish complete from incomplete sentences and moves forward from there. Students shed bad usage and punctuation habits early as they learn to edit their work and progress from writing simple paragraphs to writing paragraphs with more varied and complex sentences. This book s methodology is simple; each chapter includes short lessons in grammar, sentence structure, and mechanics that students work through in preparation for an end-of chapter writing assignment that, in most cases, is based on a personal experience.

Elizabeth Weal teaches ESL to adults in Redwood City, CA. She has written seven ESL books that focus on addressing the needs of ESL students who have limited knowledge of grammar in both English and their native language. Writing in English: Step by Step, is her most recent book; she wrote it because of her observation that many of her students lacked basic knowledge about how to construct a paragraph in English. She is also the author of Gramatica del ingles: Paso a paso 1, Gramatica del ingles: Paso a paso 2, English Grammar: Step by Step 1, English Grammar: Step by Step 2, Teaching English: Step by Step 1, and Teaching English: Step by Step 2.
