In the era of globalisation, English has become the world language of research and publication in academia. Apart from English-speaking countries, a plethora of non-English speaking countries use English as a major language in higher education. The discipline of English for Academic Purposes (EAP) in the field of English language education has become increasingly important. With the rapid growth of students using English for tertiary studies in both native and non-native contexts, it is essential to examine the teaching and learning of EAP in a research perspective, globally, in order to reinforce students English language proficiency and help them achieve successful academic communication in the English language learning environment. Reviewing practices in different EAP classrooms can help readers reflect on the effectiveness of current classroom practices and teaching methodologies. The purpose of this book is to provide insightful information on current research and practices in EAP education across different contexts. This book also explores the teaching and learning of English academic discourse in an international perspective so that readers can gain a comprehensive and in-depth understanding of how EAP education is practised in different parts of the world. The first part of the book, Current Research on Teaching and Learning English for Academic Purposes, focuses on empirical educational research in EAP and its implications for future pedagogical development. The second part of the book, Practices of Teaching and Learning English for Academic Purposes, is more closely related to the practical issues of course design and delivery in EAP classrooms. This edited volume is designed for undergraduate and postgraduate students on applied linguistics and English language programmes, EAP practitioners, educational researchers and policy-makers. The chapters will bring readers to the forefront of EAP education by exploring current EAP research and practices in both English-speaking and non-English speaking countries. It is a useful reference work for future research development on curriculum planning, material development and teaching methodology in English language classrooms. Last, but by no means least, the editors would like to extend their heart-felt appreciation to Nova Science Publishers and all the contributors, without whose input this project would not have been realised. A debt of gratitude is also owed to Dr Leo Hoye for his professional advice concerning this edited volume.
