Artikelbeschreibung

LEAP: Reading and Writing aims to improve reading and writing skills with Academic Word List (AWL), vocabulary, grammar, academic survival skills, and final assignments that let learners apply what they learned in individual and personalized ways. Focus on critical thinking helps learners reflect on what they read to develop strategies that can be applied to writing. The Global Scale of English (GSE) structures LEAP's learning goals to give learners a clear idea of the language objectives they should aim to meet.

Each chapter in the book focuses on engaging themes drawn from science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), as well as education and business fields. Each chapter includes three readings related to the chapter theme, often with divergent perspectives. Most of these readings are authentic and give learners a chance to apply their critical thinking skills. 

The writing component involves different types of paragraphs and other forms, including essays. 

Beyond the book,  My eLab exercises and documents give learners the opportunity to reinforce and build on what they learn.
