What is English for Academic Purposes?
English for Academic Purposes (EAP) is a course which prepares you for the challenges and difficulties you will face in an English-based degree or diploma course. It doesn’t only cover the English skills you need but also explains the different aspects of culture and learning style that you will need to know about in an Australian college or university. We teach you about such things as how to do research, how to express your ideas in a group discussion, and how to use critical thinking.
Of course, there is also a focus on the skills you will need with the English language to cope at college. In writing, we teach you how to plan and write an essay, and how to include references from your research. In reading, we look at how to quickly find the relevant information you need, as well as how to analyse a text in-depth. With listening, you will learn about how to follow what your lecturer is saying and how to take notes. And for speaking, you will practise working in a group tutorial and how to give a presentation to an audience. As you study these skills, we will also provide you with the grammar and vocabulary you need to deal with each of them, such as using signalling language to connect the parts of your essay or seminar. We also look at more general study skills, including how to avoid plagiarism or how to identify your own mistakes.
Overall, our EAP course provides you with the knowledge and abilities you need to get started in your Australian study life.
