    Abstract:
    LEAP: Learning English for Academic Purposes (Reading and Writing) is one book in Pearson’s series of English for Academic Purposes (EAP) for highintermediate and advanced learners. The book has eight chapters which cover topics in different fields, for example education, psychology, business, and biology. Each chapter deals with both reading and writing skills. A consistent format is adopted throughout all chapters, starting with an overview (that describes the objectives and features of the chapter), followed by a “Gearing –Up” activity (that aims to activate and build learners’ schema), reading (that intends to provide input), and writing (for language production). The book dedicates a separate part “Vocabulary Build” in each chapter to building learners’ awareness and repertoire of words having high usage frequency in the Academic Word List. It also includes other sections such as “Focus on Reading”, “Focus on Writing”, and “Academic Survival Skills” which provide explicit instructions on developing reading and writing skills in academic settings.
