Academic English can be used flexibly as a self-study course or homework supplement for students who are preparing for further study in English. Those who are willing to study 2-3 hours a week over several months will see a significant improvement in their level and have increased confidence in listening and reading in academic settings.
Each lesson in Academic English is broken down into short sections that will help develop listening and reading skills, and increase exposure to academic vocabulary. The lexical items throughout Academic English have been selected from the Academic Word List (AWL) which features the highest frequency words across different disciplines. The course content is benchmarked against the TOEFL® examination and students will become familiar with many of the task-types used in this international exam.
Lessons begin with a focus on the key vocabulary related to the topic and skill focus. Skills practice is then provided using reading and listening material that students might encounter in an academic paper or university lecture. A Learner Training section summarizes the skill area that is being learned, and provides useful tips for using the skills in a real-life setting.
Separate video tutorials on managing your learning and developing study skills are included to support the learner. The video tutorials can be viewed and reviewed at any stage of the course. An end-of-lesson test checks students’ grasp of new words, and their reading and listening comprehension skills.
