Summary: Academic Encounters helps ESL/EFL students develop the reading, writing, and study skills they need to meet the demands of college courses.

For those instructors who want to use the content as a jumping off point for longer writing assignments, numerous opportunities are provided.

Taken from university-level textbooks, these readings include high-interest topics such as stress and physical health, nonverbal communication, and love. They engage students in the subject matter while exposing them to academic discourse. Exercises develop a variety of reading skills.
