Study Academic Listening and Speaking in the EAP Intensive English Program

Listening and speaking skills are important for success at university. Whether you need to listen to a class lecture, ask a question, or simply want to meet new friends, having strong communication skills will help you excel at university and beyond.

While completing our English as a second language program, you will have the chance to improve your listening and speaking skills by practising conversations with your friends, taking part in classroom discussions, and even preparing interesting presentations.

Practise Academic Writing in the EAP Intensive English Program

For many students, writing can be one of the more difficult parts of learning a new language. Many English words are packed full of silent letters, making spelling and other aspects of English writing difficult. Fortunately, at CultureWorks each one of our instructors has years of experience and knows just how to help students like you succeed. Whether you’re writing a paper, writing the answers to questions, or putting together an interesting project, our friendly instructors are there to help you every step of the way.

Improve Your Reading Skills in the EAP Intensive English Program

If you want to apply for conditional acceptance to one of our exciting partner universities, improving your English reading skills is important. While attending university, you will need to read textbooks, notes, articles, and many other materials. Therefore, having strong reading skills will help you do better in school. To help you prepare for this, academic reading is included right into the EAP curriculum. You’ll learn important vocabulary often used in academic settings, helping you make a smooth transition into your university studies.

The EAP Intensive English Program Helps You Develop Strong Grammar Skills

English grammar can be especially difficult, even for native English speakers! There are many different rules to learn, and many of those rules have exceptions. Fortunately, the CultureWorks EAP program includes a class devoted entirely to grammar. Our instructors are patient and will work with you until you feel confident with your grammatical skills. Don’t forget, having good grammar will pay off once you start your university program! Your essays and projects will be easier to read, and you will be able to clearly communicate your research and opinions.
