Access EAP: Frameworks Access EAP: Frameworks is nominated for the Excellence in Course Innovation award at the 2014 ELTons. Written by the authors of the highly successful EAP Essentials, the second part of this two-level course teaches academic language and competence to Upper Intermediate to Advanced learners. Access EAP: Frameworks is designed for students who are about to enter higher education studies in an English-speaking institution. The course is based on real student life and prepares students for the tasks they will face when studying in an English-medium higher education institution. The reader follows students at university as they have discussions, listen to lectures, read texts, work on assignments and make choices about how to study. The book builds language and competence across key academic themes such as academic integrity, argument and research, applying the concept of Graduate Attributes - skills, personal qualities and understanding that are developed through the higher education experience - to frame activities and tasks. The book has ten units, each framed around a key academic theme. Within each unit, the first section introduces the theme and subsequent sections develop the associated concepts, language and competence further or in a different context. The units are free standing, but within them the language skills and study competence are integrated, reflecting the reality of academic study. Key academic words 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 study, including the ability to read critically and integrate ideas from sources into essays or reports. See accompanying Teacher's Book.
