English for Academic Study: Reading

This fully updated 2012 edition of English for Academic Study: Reading is designed to challenge and stimulate students on pre-sessional and pre-departure courses. The Course Book contains step-by-step activities written by EAP professionals at the University of Reading’s International Study and Language Centre. The activities are designed for use with authentic reading texts in the accompanying EAS: Reading & Writing Source Book. EAS: Reading is based on an extensive review of recent research into EAP writing methodology, and reflects the most recent developments in language teaching for academic purposes.

The unit topics are as follows:

  • Reading for academic purposes
  • Sustainable energy
  • The business of science
  • Society today
  • Food security
  • Human resource management
  • Sustainable fashion
  • The Tipping Point

Each unit uses the contemporary, stimulating texts in the accompanying EAS: Reading & Writing Source Book to ensure that students are challenged to develop the reading skills and approaches that will be vital throughout their academic studies. The attractive new format includes key reading skills and study tip features, together with a comprehensive book map and a glossary of terms.

The Course Book includes unit summaries to give you a quick overview of what you have covered, and a comprehensive glossary of terms. Each unit also has weblinks offering additional information and activities relating to reading skills and the topics covered in the units. Visit the dedicated website for even more resources.

This book can be used in conjunction with the following books in the English for Academic Study (EAS) series, also published by Garnet Education: EAS: Reading & Writing Source Book, EAS: Writing, EAS: Extended Writing & Research Skills, EAS: Listening, EAS: Speaking, EAS: Vocabulary and EAS: Pronunciation.

“The EAS Reading course aims to help students work on effective reading strategies, detailed comprehension of sentences and paragraphs, and text analysis. The reading texts are authentic and meaty, addressing topics like science selling out to commerce, food security, and the biological implications of social networking. They go into more depth than the average newspaper article and could provoke lively discussions.”

- Margaret Oertig for ETAS Journal, Vol. 30, No 3, Summer 2013
