English for Academic Purpose Program

CoursesComments Off on English for Academic Purpose Program

Conventional ESL programs do not educate students with the skills necessary to prosper at the advanced academic level required in Canadian colleges and universities. RCIIS is uniquely situated to offer the type of program which will fill the void that currently exists.

The English for Academic Purpose program is designed to provide students with the skills necessary to succeed in the Canadian post-secondary environment. This program will educate international students with not only the language skills, but also academic and life skills necessary to succeed in a Canadian post-secondary institution.

Students will gain knowledge in different areas of study such as psychology, sociology, history and business.

Our EAP program is a cross-curricular program specially designed for the following skills:

  • Critical Analysis
  • Independent Thought
  • Critical Reading and Comprehension
  • Speaking and Presentation skills
  • Academic Writing
  • Academic Research and Vocabulary Expansion
  • Intensive Listening
  • Academic Strategies for Success
  • Life Skills
  • Individual and Group feedback

 

Students will engage in a wide range of university disciplines and be encouraged to participate in discussions on open-ended questions.  With regards to the listening and speaking component, students will be exposed to different viewpoints while working towards both individual and group related activities such as organized debates and presentations.  Additionally, students will build and expand their comprehension of concepts and vocabulary with a particular focus on the Academic Word List.

Length of course:  25 hours for 12 weeks (5 hours per day plus individual sessions with instructor).
