The well-established link of metadiscourse research tradition to the philosophy of ESP has sparked some inevitable questions regarding how much and how well the model has been adapted to academic writing pedagogy's practical needs. It has been argued that novice participants of academic/scientific discourse communities will be able to rewrite academic communication and banish a substantial number of misconceptions that have been entrenched by long years of positivistic thinking, thanks to the effective introduction of the concept of metadiscourse into pedagogical styles and its appropriate operationalization.

Assessment by Thai academic English writing teachers of the flow of given to new topic information within academic writing

For many non-native academic English writing teachers, the transition of written academic text is similarly difficult, less assess. A qualified native English writing instructor was employed by a skilled native English writing teacher to determine the connection between the Thai writing teachers' discovery of the flow of given to new topic data and a preliminary investigation of topic information flow. The findings from this report reveal that Thai academic English writing teachers were unable to detect the presence of given to new topic information changes in academic texts. The implication of this study indicates that at this time, the realistic use of a given word in written assessments for Thai academic English writing teachers may not be a valuable evaluative tool.

Diagnostic assessment of novice EFL learners’ discourse competence in academic writing: a case study

Abstract Discourse competence is an essential component of communicative competence and is integral to academic writing's mastery. This paper details a three-tiered diagnostic examination of two English as a foreign language student writers'u2019 discourse proficiency in terms of textual content, composing skills, and academic writing. We uncovered their discourse-level deficiencies and assessed their writing practices and academic writing skills to determine their relationships with the observed flaws based on extensive reviews of their writing samples, writer logs, and semi-structured interviews to determine their relationships with the discovered flaws. Both students were deadline fighters whose poor time management seemed to blame for the text's inability, according to an investigation into their writing process. We suggest a three-stage instructional course to support novice EFL learners'u2019 acquisition of discourse competence in English academic writing based on the above.
