LEAP: Learning English for Academic Purposes
LEAP: Learning English for Academic Purposes features a cross-curricular approach to teaching students the skills they need to thrive in a real-life academic context, while helping them develop academic vocabulary in a range of disciplines and apply critical-thinking skills to a variety of global issues.
Written by renowned Canadian authors Julia Williams and Dr. Ken Beatty, this three-level course (Intermediate, High-Intermediate, and Advanced) is available in two complementary strands: Listening and Speaking and Reading and Writing. The two strands cover eight similar academic themes but from different perspectives.
The chapters are built around warm-up and final assignments that have students progress toward greater autonomy, while challenging texts and tasks call for students to reflect critically on the learning content.
