LEAP is the first level of a comprehensive 4-level English for Academic Purposes (EAP) course for young adults available in two strands: listening/speaking and reading/writing. LEAP features a cross-curricular approach to teaching students the skills they need to thrive in academic contexts, while helping them develop critical thinking skills and academic vocabulary. Texts featuring interesting global themes across a range of disciplines prepare students for college reading and listening requirements. LEAP has clear goals and objectives aligned with the GSE and CEFR standards.
LEAP 1 Listening and Speaking includes three listening texts per chapter, one of which is an authentic video. Students practise high-frequency vocabulary and learn academic words through focused vocabulary tasks. They review grammar notions that they apply in speaking tasks. Listening and speaking focuses introduce students to strategies in a step-by-step fashion that students apply in warm-up and final assignments. A critical thinking focus helps students reflect and synthesize ideas.
Access to My eLab and eText allows students to consolidate what they learn in class. My eLab provides students with extra online resources and practice in reading, writing and listening. All activities are self-graded, allowing students to get instant feedback and to track their personal progress. Teachers have access to a gradebook to view students' results and progress.
