The Insworld English for Academic Study (EAS) course is an integrated language and Academic Skills programme that focuses on developing the English Language skills and study skills that are essential for academic study at Insworld Institute and at university.
The Insworld EAS programme is intended for students who have not achieved the minimum English Language level required to join an Insworld EITP, IGCSE or A-Level programme. The EAS programme places equal emphasis on the four key skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. The EAS focus on academic content means that it provides solid preparation for externally assessed English Language exams such as IELTS and TOEFL It also teaches practical academic skills which will help students to study more effectively. These include;
- Making effective presentations
- Listening for detail and note-taking
- Using subject-specific academic vocabulary
- Writing in an appropriate academic register
- Organising and planning written assignments
- Essay structure and planning
- Developing techniques for reading academic texts quickly and accurately
- Developing independent learning strategies
The courses offered are dependent on the student’s English ability, they are:
- English for Academic Study – 9 months
- Certificate in English for Academic Study (Elementary) – 3 months
- Certificate in English for Academic Study (Intermediate) – 3 months
- Certificate in English for Academic Study (Advanced) – 3 months
All EAS weekly tests and end of term examinations have a similar format to IELTS tests. In order to progress to a different Insworld programme, a student must pass the EAS end-of-term exam.
Insworld students come from different countries and backgrounds, but everyone speaks English in the school; in lessons and school activities, and when talking to friends.
This is the best way to improve your English quickly – you use it because you want to communicate.
Also, English is the official language of Singapore. It is the language of education, transport, government, business and shopping. Living in Singapore is a very good way to improve your English.
Insworld English Language teachers are highly qualified and very experienced. They know how to teach and how students learn. Every student receives individual attention and support to help them learn quickly and effectively.
The Insworld approach to teaching is student-centred. This means we put the needs of our students first. We teach in small classes of 4-12 students so that our teachers get to know each student and concentrate on what they need to learn. We also want students to be active participants in classes, asking questions and joining in class discussions. The best way to learn English is to study it – and then to use it.
