  • The Houghton Mifflin English for Academic Success competencies, which are based on competencies developed by ESL instructors and administrators in Florida, California, and Connecticut, provide an underlying structure for EAP courses by ensuring a clear articulation of objectives throughout the series.
  • All materials classroom were tested and approved by a board of adjunct instructors to ensure ease-of-use for both full- and part-time instructors.
  • "Master Student Tips" are excerpted from the market-leading first-year orientation book, "Becoming a Master Student."
  • A wide variety of easy-to-implement assessmenttools, designed for both instructor use and self-assessment by students, include student self-assessment at the end of each chapter, student self-assessment tests on the student web site, downloadable tests and quizzes for instructors on the instructor web site.
  • Contextualized vocabulary practice is always presented and practiced within contexts that represent real usage. The sentence structure, the surrounding language, the examples, and the collocations represent language students in academic settings would be likely to encounter.
  • A wide variety of exercises have been carefully designed and sequenced to ensure that students use new words frequently and in a variety of ways in order to help with memorization.
