English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Workshops

This workshop is for non-native speakers of English. Making small talk is more than just getting to know someone new. It is an expected part of social behaviour, but making small talk isn't always easy. Speakers must meet certain expectations and must talk about appropriate subjects which may vary from one culture to another. These activities will give you a chance to practice what to say when you're face to face with someone new and want to get the conversation started.

For students who are non-native speakers of English

Tuesday 11 Jul
9.30am–11am
Room 111, Level 1, Stop 1 (Parkville)

This workshop is for non-native speakers of English. Academic writing is much more than writing grammatically correct sentences and paragraphs of the same length. This session will focus on the different roles sentences play in academic paragraphs such as topic sentences, and sentences providing evidence and analysis. It will also highlight the different types of paragraphing commonly found in academic texts. Be prepared for a mix of input and writing practice in this interactive workshop.

Wednesday 12 Jul

Frank Tate Building, Room 106

This workshop is for non-native speakers of English. A large English vocabulary is essential for success at university, but you need to know more than just a large number of words. This workshop will explore ways to enrich and apply your vocabulary as you study and in everyday life. Learn strategies for recognising, understanding and remembering new and difficult words so you can apply them to your academic speaking and writing.
