English for Academic Purposes: study for success at university!
English for Academic Purposes at SSC can help you if you want to study at a university in an English speaking country.
English for Academic Purposes trains you in:
- writing academic essays
- giving presentations
- taking part in academic discussion.
These skills are essential if you want to succeed in your academic career.On traditional courses, you learn in the traditional way.
For example, you have probably learned that, when writing an academic essay, you need an ‘Introduction’, a ‘Body’, and a ‘Conclusion’. But this type of basic structure is as useful as a doctor telling you that you have a ‘Head’, a ‘Body’, and ‘Feet’. In other words, it’s useless.
At SSC you actually learn how to structure academic essays. You learn using a much more detailed structure that teaches you what you need to put into each part of your essay. An understanding of this same structure is also useful for you when you have to read academic texts and when you have to structure academic presentations.
