  • Online delivery
  • eClass or U of A south campus

Focus­es on the devel­op­ment of lan­guage flu­en­cy and accu­ra­cy and on build­ing the nec­es­sary vocab­u­lary for fur­ther stud­ies with­in an aca­d­e­m­ic envi­ron­ment. Lis­ten­ing, read­ing, speak­ing, and writ­ing skills are empha­sized by engag­ing stu­dents in a vari­ety of aca­d­e­m­ic activ­i­ties. This course which pre­cedes EAP 140, will enable stu­dents to lay the foun­da­tion for suc­cess­ful aca­d­e­m­ic writ­ing. Stu­dents will be intro­duced to lan­guage learn­ing strate­gies and will devel­op study skills that are cru­cial to their suc­cess in an Eng­lish Lan­guage uni­ver­si­ty. Stu­dents should have a min­i­mum TOE­FL iBT of 40 with a min­i­mum of 12 in each band or IELTS score of 5.0 with a min­i­mum score of 4.5 in each band.
