This guide and resource book for teachers provides a comprehensive overview of the field of English for Academic Purposes (EAP). It not only looks at study skills, but also at other central concerns of EAP, such as needs analysis, syllabus and course design, methodology and materials, learning styles, tests and exams, as well as academic style and genre analysis. In addition to general EAP, the author also considers subject-specific language and the production of teaching materials. Throughout, the author adopts a user-friendly approach in which theoretical considerations are balanced with practical experience. He indicates directions for further research, gives samples of published/printed materials, and provides a list of recommended books and journals.
