关于EAP

学术英语是什么?

学术英语(English for Academic Purposes, i.e. EAP)是指进入高等教育,或国际课程(如AP、A- LEVEL、IB)后,接触到的专业英语类型。有别于日常英语,其听、说、读、写都有明显的客观、正式、精确等特点。


学术英语和生活英语的区别

学术英语
Today I would like to say something about museums should be free, or visitors should pay for admission. Well, I think that museums should be free for young students and old people. Here are my reasons. First, the museum plays an important educational role. If they are free for students, it’ll encourage schools to take students for a bit visiting in museums. Second, if they’re free for old people, the old won’t be getting all the information from newspapers and radio. Third, when the museum is not free for some certain people, the adults of some kind won’t be getting in the museum just for taking a rest.
Museum is an instructive area where people can acquire information, some of which are free while some are not. As far as I am concerned, museums may charge a certain group of people but be free for youngsters and seniors. If museums are accessible without payment, schools will be encouraged to organize students to visit them, where vivid photographs and videos are provided. Also, free access allows seniors to obtain information beside newspapers and radio. However, for a certain group of visitors who usually take advantages of museum to rest or play in, a ticket might be in necessity so as to avoid any inappropriate behaviour and guarantee the quiet environment.


为什么要学习学术英语?

老师的话   The all-round English ability of our students is getting better and better. However, as most of them have seldom been exposed to academic English before, we have to train them from the very beginning.

学生的话   EAP学术英语课程中,我收获了很多。辩论、论文答辩、做项目、社会调查、演讲、小组讨论等活动让我印象深刻。这种全新的教学方式既展现了西方课堂的特点,也是中国教育与西方教育的融合。课堂上精彩的小组讨论、观点的碰撞都让我收获颇丰。

学术要求   对于一个国际学生来说,即使托福、雅思或SAT考得不错,但到一个全英文的陌生环境中,还是会感觉英文水平不足难以应付全新的学习方式(如考试及笔记技巧、学术讨论和演讲,乃至学术文章和研究论文写作等)。

调查显示   大部分亚洲学生在英美高等教育或预修课程中完成阅读任务,每门专业课前后长长的阅读单是很多学生的噩梦。很多非英语国家的学生论文不理想丢失学生不是因为学科知识不够或者写作技巧缺乏,而是不懂学术论文规范。

b. 学生感言


At the beginning of 2015, I began the studying in EAP. At first, I could not successfully get involved in class. Instead, I felt I was just a spectator, listened teacher speaking and the discussion of other classmates. Gradually, I thought having such lessons was extremely boring. However, after a half-year studying in it, I felt that I definitely changed a lot. Because of the vivid teaching ways of those lovely teachers, I started to become interested in the class and tried to communicate with other students. What’s more, the relationship between students also became closer. The most important thing I gained from these lessons is a lot of useful knowledge. It not only helps me improve myself but also plays a significant role in my school life. Thanks to my persistence, I acquired plenty of beneficial things as well as made friends with lots of people.

2015年初,我开始了在华附EAP课程的学习。一开始,我并不能融入课堂中,只是默默地坐在教室里听老师讲课,听同学们讨论,因为不能参与其中,所以不自觉地开始觉得课堂十分的无聊,然而经过半年的学习后,我感觉自己着实变化了许多。老师有趣的讲课方式使我对课堂逐渐产生浓厚的兴趣,课堂里的小组讨论让我体会到了学习的快乐。同学们开始打成一片,上课与老师互动,下课和同桌交流。当然,最重要的是,在课堂上学习的知识十分有用,它们不仅帮助我提升了自己的学术能力,而且在我现在在校的学习中起到了很大的作用。如今学习快接近尾声,我很庆幸当初自己坚持下来,获得了一堆知识,也结识了一群朋友。


My study in the EAP course has helped me a lot in improving academic English. In class, everybody is free to use English to express their opinions, which offers a perfect chance to practice my oral English. Besides developing English skills, studying academic English has made me a more organized person. In speaking and writing class, I learnt to state my opinion within a clear, logical structure. Moreover, the idea of critical thinking has also influenced me a lot. All in all, the course has been very helpful in a variety of ways.

我在EAP的学习在提高学术英语方面给了我很多的帮助。在课堂上,每个人都可以用英语表达他们的观点,这为练习我的口语提供了一个很好的机会。除了英语技能方面的提升,学习学术英语还将我塑造成了一个更加有条理的人。在口语与写作课上,我学会了如何用清晰的逻辑结构来表达自己的观点。更重要的是,批判性思考也影响了我很多。


EAP was an amazing program! Personally, I think it was the best English program I have ever been enrolled in. The program gives me a deeper insight into academic English and the way westerners think. By exposing me to various conditions and topics under the environment of native English, my knowledge of western culture and skills of critical thinking would definitely be improved. What’s more, academic English will not be so abstract; instead the experience of learning is really exhilarating.

EAP是一个很激动人心的课程!我个人认为其独特的魅力令我终身难忘,算是我参加过最好的英语课程。该课程帮助你更深入地了解学术英语和西方人的思维方式。同时由于话题和条件都模拟纯正英语的环境,你有关西方文化的知识和批判性思维的能力将显著提高。最后温馨提示一下,学术英语非但不如想象中的抽象难以理解,其学习过程可是十分令人激动的哦!
