English for Academic Purposes - EAP

EAP Classroom Instruction

Instructors take a communicative approach to teaching English, using authentic materials and focusing on "real" communication in the classroom.

  • Instructional methods may vary from one instructor to another, but students will work individually, in pairs, in small groups, and as a whole class.
  • Attendance is mandatory, and textbooks are required for each class.
  • During the semester, students will have both in-class and out-of-class assignments (homework). Students will also take tests, quizzes and a final exam. Many instructors require students to give oral presentations during the semester as well.
