Have a great week everyone. Next #EAPchat is August 6. #eapchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
I'll put the transcript online shortly and hope to read your blog posts about it in the coming weeks. #eapchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
Thanks everyone for giving your two-ten cents. =) #eapchat

@lexicojules True. So you spend all your time trying to invent purposes. Isn't ESP/EAP easier? #EAPchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
@lexicojules Ah, yes then. My exp is EAP pays much higher than PLS. They are at the bottom here. #eapchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
I'd love to keep going, but time's up. I encourage any of you to blog further about this topic as it's very provocative. #eapchat

@uefap I've certainly taught some teenage summer school Ss who had no purpose! Very fluffy & vague. #EAPchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
@lexicojules Haha. I use the Tweetchat, which seems pretty good. #eapchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
Sure, but I think that's semantics. General ESL/EFL has connotations to it of less specificity in purpose. No? @UEfAP #eapchat
Andy Gillett @UEfAP
@lexicojules "Hourly uni EAP rates better than PLS rates in my experience." Where? #EAPchat
Julie Moore @lexicojules
Sorry got to go - would love to chat more! Is Twitter chat frustratingly slow/limiting or is that just an EAP-type attitude?! #EAPchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
@harrisonmike Interesting way to go. Sometimes I think that's important here too. All ppl could use Academic Skills. #eapchat
Andy Gillett @UEfAP
@lexicojules Don't think there is such a thing as general = no purpose English. In real world language always used for a purpose. #eapchat

@uefap Hourly uni EAP rates better than PLS rates in my experience. #EAPchat

@seburnt pre access then access to he courses, but not spec for foreign ppl. They r lumped in w/native speakers #eapchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
@lexicojules Hmm, maybe. I think EAP is a specific interest though - not for all ELTers. #eapchat
Andy Gillett @UEfAP
@seburnt: EAP university positions DO tend to have better conditions and higher wages" Which countries are we talking about? #eapchat
Julie Moore @lexicojules
@seburnt I think EAP is often a career progression - better pay, more stable, etc. ELTers settling down?! #EAPchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
@harrisonmike then do they not do some sort of EAP equivalent course eventually? #eapchat
Mike @mikejhldn
@seburnt @lexicojules @uefap not sure it's limited tho. Refugees n econ migrants want to study at higher levels too #eapchat
Tyson Seburn @seburnt
It seems to be a relationship to the tuition paid for the class. General ELT is usually quite cheap (or free here for immigrants). #eapchat
