TUITION FEE

The English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program at WASS is for students who are not yet proficient or who do not yet meet the English requirements to enter the international or bilingual classes at the Western Australian International School System.

Built on the English as Additional Language or Dialect (EAL/D) program, the EAP program is designed to gradually improve students’ English proficiency so that they can join one of the other two programs. Training programs are designed to provide the appropriate support for students in EAP classes.

The course is intensive in nature and requires a lot of work on the students’ part to help students develop the necessary skills in language required for academic success in college or university.

ABOUT PROGRAM

Language skills addressed include listening comprehension, fluency development, oral intelligibility, reading, grammar, writing, and vocabulary development.

Students not only develop their overall language skills but also focus on developing specific academic skills such as test-taking and note-taking skills, academic vocabulary usage, critical reading and writing, comprehending academic lectures, research and library skills, formal composition forms and development, including research papers and individual presentations or group discussions.

The program is structured in 3 subjects:

  • Core: developing skills such as grammar, reading and writing.
  • Listening and Speaking.
  • Applied: Students will use the content learned to apply to specific activities including making videos, presenting, composing, writing reports, assessing and commenting.

LEARNING CONTENT
