The focus of this EAP course is to develop the skills areas in English, which the student will require to study alongside native speakers in tertiary courses.
EAP 1 bridges the gap between General English and Academic English. It provides a good introduction to Academic English for those students wanting to continue their EAP study. It features thought provoking topics and develops the necessary skills required for university study – note-taking, essay writing and presentations skills. It also provides strategies for undertaking research and dealing with unfamiliar academic vocabulary.
EAP 2 focuses on developing student’s academic English skills to prepare them for vocational level studies and follow on from them into tertiary studies. Students are given further practice in academic study skills. There is also analysis of the characteristics of written and spoken academic texts, the development of the awareness of academic culture, as well as learning how to avoid plagiarism. Included are more sophisticated essay organisation, note-taking, group discussion, the skills of writing references and paraphrasing texts. Students learn more effective research skills and develop academic presentation abilities.
