Abstract: This paper introduces a pedagogical proposal for the development of writing skills based on the analysis of multi-genre structures (AMS). The objective of this AMS model is to help teachers design genres that may be used in the language classroom. This genre analysis can be performed with software tools for corpus analysis. This study is based on a previous model of genre analysis designed to determine the forms of the macrostructure, microstructure, and the format of the target genre (Casañ-Pitarch, 2015) and focuses on ESP students at tertiary education. The AMS model is expected to help students improve their writing skills and gain specific knowledge on professional and academic genres.
