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.
Robert McLarty works as Principle Academic Staff Member at Waikato Institute of Technology where he teaches EAP to international students who wish to move on to study in tertiary education in New Zealand.
