This course focuses on how to teach EAP to students who are already studying at university (Insessional classes) or preparing to study at university (Presessional and Foundation courses). This course gives an insight into the methods and materials used by the LSE Language Centre in preparing students to function effectively in their academic work. It includes the following key features:

  • Overview of the EAP courses and resources offered at the LSE

  • Preparing students for academic writing, reading, lectures and seminars
  • Course planning and assessment
  • EAP resources and materials
  • Classroom observations

It is also relevant for teachers currently teaching EAP classes in other institutions who wish to gain an insight into the LSE approach to teaching EAP. Course participants are normally expected to have a DELTA or MA in ELT/Applied Linguistics or equivalent.

When does the course take place?

This is a one-week intensive course consisting of 19 hours of lessons and 4 hours of EAP class observation. Students are expected to have carried out reading tasks prior to the start of the course. Students also carry out one written task and one materials creation task.
