English for Academic Purposes (EAP)

CRICOS Course Code: 098067D

Course rationale

The EAP course is a 12 week, 20 hours per week course. The core part of the course is the first two and a half hours, when students will use the set textbook, along with supplementary material. Students will study the following skill areas: speaking, reading and critical thinking, language (grammar), writing, and listening and note-taking. As this period is the core part of the students’ learning, the most important aim for the instructor is to create a positive and supportive classroom environment, while at the same time climatising students to an appropriate degree of academic intensity. The last hour and a half of the day will focus on two specific skills – critical thinking and essay writing. These practical classes are designed to add to the students’ learning experience by covering material that complements what is included in the Core Classes.
