This book is meant to be a guide for non-native speakers of English who wish to improve their writing skills, in particular their summarizing skills in the fields of economics, business and (marginally) law.
The language which will be taught in this handbook is English as a lingua franca; hence, the language used as a means of communication all over the world and, most of all, in Europe.
In particular, the reader will be requested to read an article and complete some comprehension tasks, or read a summary written by university students and learn by noticing recurrent writing mistakes.
The level of knowledge tackled by this handbook is between B1 and B2 (intermediate and upper-intermediate).
