Benchmarking in TESOL: Jawaid’s 4F Formula for Writing Task 2 of IELTS Introduction My readers (students and teachers) need to know that this very specific writing course has been designed for tertiary International IELTS students at Linton University College, Malaysia.

Many of them join the English Language Centre with very limited English language proficiency in listening, speaking, reading and writing (Elementary). To help the above students learn fast we have collected writing benchmarks drawn from Jawaid’s (2014) TESOL Quality Framework: Benchmarking for Curriculum Improvement and his empirical experience. The objective of this write-up is to familiarise the English for Academic Purpose (EAP) students and teachers with this practical fit for purpose writing course.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
