Developing academic skills is a major purpose of foreign language studies. Reading skills are prior to raising language competence. Mastering different kinds of reading (skimming, reading for gist, scanning, reading for detail) leads to a general increase of language skills. The teacher's task is to train students to know what to learn and how to learn it. The article covers modern approaches to teaching reading skills.
Academic environment constraints, i.e. limited amount of EFL hours for non-majors, call for a careful consideration of the stakeholders' needs in curriculum design in higher education context of a non-English speakign country. Tailoring an EFL course to those needs lands itself into an integrated program, comprising several study areas. This article discusses a case of syllabus design, combining a traditional EFL component, academic skills training and major-specific content (Country Studies for International Affairs majors). The author discusses the application of a solf systems methodology (SSM) in the academic environment.
