Since 1951, the Language Training and Testing Center (LTTC) in Taipei, Taiwan has been highly regarded by the public for providing quality teaching and testing of foreign languages and regularly hosting talks and conferences on themes related to language education.
In response to the increasing significance of the internationalization of higher education, the LTTC has recently added a new focus—the training and testing of English for Academic Purposes (EAP). To engender fruitful dialogue on this emerging trend, the LTTC will host a symposium on the theme of “EAP in Global Higher Education” in May 2013.
This symposium will provide a forum for professionals in higher education and those in the fields of EAP to exchange thoughts and practical ideas from diverse perspectives. Experts and policy-makers from Taiwan and abroad will also demonstrate their efforts to prepare students for international studies and promote higher education.
