Teaching English for Academic Purposes (TEAP) Course

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

Who is the course for?

This course is suitable for experienced EFL teachers who wish to specialise in teaching EAP. 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.
