English For Academic Purposes (EAP)


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 programs

The subjects areas of the program are developed around seven essential skills to create confident, dynamic, creative and knowledgeable generations of students. WASS students become independent individuals who are fully equipped with the skills necessary to contribute to society. They become capable of communicating with and respecting the cultures of the nations, to work towards the good common interests and to be responsible members of the community.

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

The EAP classes are built around the three interrelated strands of language, literature and literacy. The EAP classes focus on IELTS preparation, in which students will learn about all sections of the IELTS test, practice skills and techniques they need to perform their best on the test date.
The strands focus on developing students’ knowledge, understanding and skills in listening, reading, viewing, speaking, writing and creating. The lessons cover both examination skills and techniques and work on improving all aspects of the students’ English: speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary.
