Humber’s English for Academic Purposes (EAP) certificate program is an intensive, full-time academic pathway program. The program integrates receptive (listening/reading) and productive (speaking/writing) skills together with interaction (including online interaction) and mediation language activities and strategies with the focus on communicative academic English. You will benefit from innovative language study skills and accessible individual tutoring support. The curriculum is geared toward non-native speakers of English who want to improve their language competence and fluency in writing, communication and critical thinking skills for entry into most college diploma, degree and graduate certificate programs or for further professional development.
The program consists of:
8 levels that each run for 8 weeks. The length of study will be based on the assigned entry level which is determined by the English proficiency test results. For placement level information, go here.
18 hours per week of in-class and online instruction (blended learning)
additional hours every week completing computer assisted language learning (CALL) activities including additional reading activities, vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation and digital literacy skills under the guidance of a Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) certified lab co-ordinator
Our faculty are dedicated professionals who have been teaching, publishing, and working in the English as a Second Language ESL/EAP field for many years. They all hold graduate credentials including solid training in ESL/EAP teaching.
Improving your language skills in the EAP program has the additional benefit of allowing you to become familiar with Humber faculty, staff, administration and campus life. The Humber community guides your transition into your future academic study at Humber.
Our advisory committee provides regular review of and input into our curriculum, ensuring our program is always on the forefront of post-secondary and industry developments.
