English for academic purpose0 student
CRICOS Course Code: 096193C
The EAP course is a 12 week, 20 hours per week. 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.
The primary goal for English for Academic Purposes (EAP) students is to give them the skills to fully integrate into an Australian University undergraduate course. The EAP Course is designed to prepare students for the academic rigour of a degree course learning and assessment environment, with a focus on critical thinking, academic writing and presentation skills. This EAP course effectively integrates the four macro-skills, which optimises the possibility of a student becoming an autonomous learner, a pre-requisite for academic success at a university level. By the end of the course, students will be able to confidently and effectively participate in a university lecture, lab class and workshop.
