An interesting webinar (if I can call it like that). I did learn quite a few new things about essay genres. I guess one will learn more from such 'webinars' than anylizing other authors' pieces like essays at http://jetwriters.com/slavery-essay/ (I was told it helps). In fact reading does help a lot to improve writing skills (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mike-hanski/read-more_b_5192754.html). Well, still quite unsure how my skills improved. Anyways, a fascinating video. I'm looking forward to see next one.

Thank you so much for sharing this useful webinar! As a student who is fond of writing, I pay much attention to this art. The more you write, the better your texts are. However, academic writing has its peculiarities, especially when it comes to genres. It's important to produce well-written text in order to get a good mark and obtain knowledge, but I've found that most students face obstacles as they make some common mistakes. Thus, I've gathered all information to share tips with others: http://adverbless.com/esl-writing-mistakes.htmlAs for me, everyone should hone academic writing as this skill can help you in your future career a lot!
