      How much A does an EAP course need?

      Many of us work on foundation courses where students are being prepared to enter mainstream tertiary education where they will be studying in English. Apart from the context of a university or polytechnic and the learning environment of lectures, seminars and tutorials, how different is the English they require compared to that needed to work or even just travel in English? In this webinar I will look at the four skills and compare the content of a general and an academic English course.

      In recent years there has been a growing understanding of the importance of critical thinking within EAP, but many teachers still find it difficult to translate this into the classroom. This session will look at ways in which critical thinking can be embedded within ‘regular’ EAP activities, and our students can be fully empowered with these crucial 21st century skills.

      Basic literacy in ELT

      Learning English using current language teaching methods and materials generally requires learners to have mastered basic English literacy (the ability to encode and decode English script). Learners are often required to write, not only to practice the writing skill, but also to provide personalized examples etc. For adult learners with literacy issues, levels of motivation and achievement may suffer. This topic is gaining relevance for more and more English Language teachers. I will discuss this and outline ideas for teaching approaches, and strategies that can help address the issue.

      Synergistic Speaking Tasks: Ways to manage successful end-of-unit tasks for the oral communication classroom

      EAP texts often include productive speaking tasks such as presentations, oral reports, and mock debates as capstone activities to consolidate the language taught in the respective units. Both preparation and the finished product are beneficial in giving learners confidence regarding their mastery of the material and providing a realistic setting for them to utilize what they have learned. I will present different scaffolding methods to facilitate successful outcomes in terms of student engagement with the material and achieving a balance of creative expression and the attainment of course language objectives.

      Academic English tests: What are the challenges in testing language proficiency and academic skills of high level (B2+) learners?

      This session will reflect on the overlap between academic literacy and language proficiency in testing at CEFR B2 level and above. It will examine two models of general language proficiency and consider how they fit into the concept of academic literacy. The session will then compare the constructs of high level language proficiency and academic literacy and go on to consider the implications for testing the academic English of high level language learners.
