Reading and writing are skills which can be easily practiced in an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) environment, and are particularly important for academic improvement and life-long learning. The book includes an overview of theoretical and practical issues of methods of teaching EFL reading and writing, as well as some research on related topics in Georgia. It deals with such issues as theories of reading and writing, reading and writing activities, motivation, and assessment. It focuses on EFL, as, in Georgia, there is no English-language environment apart from the classroom where students can develop their communicative skills. The contributors to this volume work at the International Black Sea University, where tuition is mostly conducted in English, and, correspondingly, teaching English is one of the main research priorities.

Teaching English to Second Language Learners in Academic Contexts: Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking provides the fundamental knowledge that ESL and EFL teachers need to teach the four language skills. This foundational text, written by internationally renowned experts in the field, explains why skills-based teaching is at the heart of effective instruction in English for academic purposes (EAP) contexts. Each of the four main sections of the book helps readers understand how each skill—reading, writing, listening, and speaking—works and explains what research has to say about successful skill performance. Pedagogically focused chapters apply this information to principles for EAP curriculum design and to instructional activities and tasks adaptable in a wide range of language-learning contexts. Options for assessment and the role of digital technologies are considered for each skill, and essential information on integrated-skill instruction is provided. Moving from theory to practice, this teacher-friendly text is an essential resource for courses in TESOL programs, for in-service teacher-training seminars, and for practicing EAP teachers who want to upgrade their teaching abilities and knowledge bases.
