Take the example of a soap powder advertisement. Reflecting on the fact, this writing aims to propose several activities involving critical reading to facilitate students' learning in GBA classes. This narrow focus, while possibly useful in short course design in an LSP language for specific purposes context, such as pre-experience business English courses where final needs may vary considerably, has more limited attraction in other LGP language for general purposes courses.
Student completion of the task may vary according to the difficulty of the task, the linguistic resources needed to complete the task, the amount of support given or the motivation of the students to complete the task. Thus, writing within a second language learning classroom situation often not only has to strike an uneasy compromise between the developmental view of writing as emphasized by the process approach, the reinforcement of language points as emphasized by the product approach, but also has to take account of the final needs of the learner.
Genre analysis, as in the case of Swales' four move model of article introductions, often means that prescriptive rules are given and the students work from the rules or the models given. The most typical category members become protypes, for example a robin is a prototype bird, a chair a prototype piece of furniture.
However, this improvement in one genre may have less relevance in a pre-experience context where students may firstly have little experience of discourse analysis and secondly the range of genres that they will have to deal with in the future is less predictable.
Several research findings have shown the effectiveness of GSA in helping the students to learn the organizational structure as well as linguistic features ofa certain genre See KimDruryand Emiliaamong others.
The goal will be to strengthen the students' ability to read more knowledgeably, understand more clearly, analyze more carefully, and assess more accurately Reichenbach,
