Teaching English for Academic Purposes (TEAP) 2017

IFCELS, at SOAS University of London, runs two Teaching English for Academic Purposes (TEAP) courses every summer:

  • a two-week intensive, full-time course in July (Course 1)
  • a two-week intensive, full-time course in August (Course 2)

TEAP courses are designed for qualified teachers, who would like to move into teaching EAP (Teaching English for Academic Purposes) but whose experience to date is mainly in English teaching other than TEAP.

"Lots of practical ideas for TEAP ... the writing assessment was especially relevant ... the observations gave me real insight ... I've a good handle on all the components of EAP now." - Summer 2016 TEAP participant
"The structure of the SOAS IFCELS courses are among the best I've ever seen. Both learners and teachers we observed were impressive." - Summer 2016 TEAP participant
