English for Academic Purposes- High Schools

English for Academic Purposes (EAP) is for students who plan to study in Australian educational institutions. The program builds on the skills learnt in General English, continues to develop students' English language skills and also teaches students the skills needed to succeed at academic study. Key focus areas include listening to lectures, note-taking, planning and writing academic essays, oral presentations and group discussions.

Upon completion of EAP level 1, students have several options. They may choose to continue on to EAP levels 2 and 3 and further develop their academic English skills.
