Book Description

This practical guide is designed to support international foundation year (IFY) teachers, leaders and managers through all of the key academic aspects of IFY provision from an English for Academic Purposes (EAP) perspective.

This book balances recent pedagogy with practical advice on areas such as academic culture, personal tutoring, managing IFY, assessment, syllabus design, materials development and student autonomy. Designed for busy teachers, this book provides examples of teaching materials and syllabus design that can be used as templates and chapters can be read in isolation or consulted by section as needed. Each chapter identifies the relevant BALEAP competencies addressed within it, allowing readers to consult according to need or interest and are designed to be revisited. There are questions for discussion at the end of each chapter which provide reflection for a team or an individual working alone.

Focusing on the practical aspects of delivering an IFY, Teaching International Foundation Year is a must-read for anyone involved in IFY language and study skills provision.
