Shona Whyte's curator insight, January 19, 2013 2:48 AM

The University of Manchester put together this 39 page document of phrases used in academic writing organised by function and with comments for users. An almost dauntingly comprehensive list, but I can see applications for teaching and learning EAP, probably with advanced learners.

Thanks, Shona, a very helpful EAP resource.

There seems to be a lot of interest in this sort of resource. I'm curious about how people see it being used for language teaching and learning.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Nice set of tools and activities for English for Academic Purposes.

The word lists can be found elsewhere but the highlighter tools and gap-fill maker are unique tools from Nottingham.

"I strongly believe we need to be (re)creating a climate of knowledge building in the EAP classroom." Steve Kirk

Shona Whyte's insight:

Steve Kirk argues that in language for academic purposes classes, fluency activities where learners "just speak" are insufficient: learners also need to learn to develop "contentful" contributions.  


I think a) this is also true of other second/foreign language teaching contexts and b) a strong version of task-based teaching can help address this concern.
