Challenges for students of English for Academic Purposes: authenticity, disciplinary difference, and voice
Monday 29th October 2012, 5-7 pm
‘Among the challenges facing EAP students are: (i) coping with the difficulties of authentic academic speech and writing; (ii) understanding how and why communication in their own discipline may be different from that in others; and (iii) finding a ‘voice’ as they report the work of other authors in their own writing.
This talk explores each of these challenges and considers how teachers and materials writers can help students overcome them, with examples taken from the recently-published Cambridge Academic English course.
Martin Hewings has taught English for over 30 years in many countries, including Sweden, Italy, Malaysia and Australia. From 1985 to 2009 he taught English for Academic Purposes at the University of Birmingham, and since then he has been a freelance author and consultant. He was co-editor of the journal English for Specific Purposes from 2001 to 2006. He has published a number of textbooks with Cambridge University Press, including Advanced Grammar in Use, Pronunciation Practice Activities, English Pronunciation in Use Advanced and Cambridge Grammar for CAE and Proficiency, and is co-author of Cambridge Academic English (2012).’
