Academic literacy : from study skills to critical literacy. <br>Tertiary institutions have been complaining for years about the poor reading and writing skills of first-year students who enter various fields of study. There is even a strong feeling that in many cases students' skills do not improve much during their studies at university. The transformation of educational institutions over the past decade to multicultural institutions and the bigger accessibility of these institutions for students from previous disadvantaged communities, moreover brought about the realisation that there are big inequalities among cultural groups regarding general readiness for studies at a university. This article makes a case for the inclusion of critical literacy in academic literacy programmes against the background of insights from the Bakhtinian school, the functional-systemic linguistics, the cognitive linguistics, discourse analysis, genre studies, socioliteracy studies en critical linguistics.
