1.022 English for Academic Purposes II (EAP II)
This twelve week English for Academic Purposes (EAP) course is designed for students seeking an English language pathway into one of AIS St Helens' certificate, diploma or degree programmes. It is also useful preparation for students seeking to study at English-speaking tertiary institutions.
This course has a strong academic focus, and is built around a series of research assignments and seminars which involve such core skills as reading and evaluating, note-taking, summarising, referencing, speaking, listening and use of the library and the internet. These skills are reinforced in the rest of the course, which includes skimming and scanning, speed reading, evaluation of arguments, listening to lectures, and group discussions and presentations. Both writing (academic essays and research papers) and reading (a range of academic texts) are strongly emphasised.
Students are required to purchase the two volumes of the AIS St Helens Academic Word List (NZD $15.00 each).
