English for Academic Study: Speaking

This fully updated 2012 edition of English for Academic Study: Speaking will help your students develop the speaking and presentation skills they need to participate effectively in academic seminars and discussions.

The units are based on the following topics:

  • Being a successful student
  • Learning online
  • Changing roles in the family
  • A healthy lifestyle
  • The influence of the media
  • The world of work
  • Protecting the environment
  • Science and the paranormal
  • Studying in a new environment

Each unit includes discussions and presentations that relate to the topic of the unit. The written and listening texts will give your students different perspectives on the topic and provide evidence to support their ideas – one of the essential features of academic life. There is also a learner diary at the end of each unit to help students think about the process of learning and the strategies they are developing.

The Course Book includes unit summaries to give students a quick overview of what they have covered, and a comprehensive glossary of terms. Each unit also has weblinks offering additional information and activities, relating to both speaking skills and the topics covered in the units.

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, EAS: Writing, EAS: Extended Writing & Research Skills, EAS: Listening, EAS: Vocabulary, EAS: Pronunciation and EAS: Grammar for Writing.
