Suitable for senior secondary and university students, teachers, and all users of English as reference or for self-study

7 practical strategies for clear and effective writing

Over 2,000 example sentences throughout the book illustrate grammatical points and correct usage

Contains a practical A-Z guide to the proper use of some 300 troublesome words

Down-to-earth coverage of a broad range of topics of grammar and usage with detailed but easy-to-understand explanations and practice exercises (with answers)

Topics that are likely to be weak spots of learners are given particular attention, such as subject-verb agreement, the number attribute of nouns, verb tenses, articles, prepositions, restrictive and non-restrictive clauses, participial phrases, conditional sentences, punctuation, parallel structure, reported speech, and word skills


Dr. Pedro Pak-tao Ng (吳白弢), a graduate in sociology of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) (1966), obtained his Ed.D. (Doctor of Education) from Harvard University in 1971, after which he began teaching in the Department of Sociology, CUHK.  In 1977-78, he was a visiting scholar at Clare Hall of the University of Cambridge as a recipient of a Leverhulme Trust Fellowship. To help students improve their English academic writing skills, he initiated and designed a “Research Writing” course in 1995, which he taught until 2015 when he retired. The course was the only one of its kind offered in The Chinese University’s Faculty of Social Science. He authored Effective Writing: A Guide for Social Science Students, published by The Chinese University Press in 2003.  Dr. Ng’s main interests include language study, classical music, reading, and travel.  He and his wife have a daughter, a son, and four grandchildren.
