The Usefulness of an Intensive Preparatory Course for EAL Thesis Writers
Manalo, Emmanuel
Journal of Research in International Education, v5 n2 p215-230 2006
Over the past decade, most Australasian universities have experienced significant increases in numbers of international and new immigrant students, including those enrolling at the graduate level. This article describes a non-credit, intensive course for English as an additional language (EAL) students preparing to undertake a thesis or dissertation in the upcoming year. The rationale for the course, its content, feedback from students who have attended, and completion rates of students--some of which are significantly better than faculty averages--are described and discussed.
