This paper provides a review of Andy Gillet’s site (Using English for Academic Purposes — A Guide for Students in Higher Education). is an immense repository of English for Academic Purposes (EAP) materials that undoubtedly represents years of dedicated work. It is a well-organised, wide-ranging, easy-to-navigate (well-signposted) and reliable site. Thus this manifestly ‘extensive’ review attempts to describe this ‘extensive’ and noteworthy Internet EAP resource. A key recommendation is that these materials, which may have been designed for self-access use, also be utilised in a modern language-lab teaching classroom.
