Access EAP: Foundations free pdf Access EAP: Foundations Written by the authors of the highly successful EAP Essentials, the first part of this two-level course teaches academic language and competence to pre-intermediate and intermediate learners. Access EAP: Foundations is based on real student life and prepares students for the tasks that they will face while doing an English-medium higher education degree. Each unit follows the progress of three students in their first year at university as they have discussions, listen to lectures, read texts, work on assignments and make choices about how to study. Students will develop the language they need to meet the expectations of their lecturers, comparing ideas, explaining cause-effect relationships, interpreting data, writing assignments and e-mails and joining in discussions. The book has ten units, each divided into five lessons. The first lesson usually introduces an aspect of university life. Listening, reading, speaking and writing tasks are linked together around each theme, while other tasks develop the ability to think critically and to study effectively. Key words that are useful for academic study are listed by the texts in which they are presented, and regular tasks help understanding, support learning and practise using these key words. Students will learn the important language and grammar patterns needed for understanding and producing academic texts. They will also discover essential aspects of academic style, such as moving from general to specific information and from what is familiar to what is new. Key Features * Functional syllabus linked to a series of academic themes * Integrated tasks and language practice * Focuses on key language and skills in a specific academic context * Improves students' ability to tackle and succeed in IELTS and other gateway examinations *'Simulated authentic' texts targeted to present specific functions and vocabulary * Written by EAP trainers from Heriot-Watt University An accompanying Teacher's Book is also available.
