English for Academic Purposes (EAP) emerged in the early 1980s, “as a relatively fringe branch of English for Specific Purposes (ESP)” (Hyland, 2006, p. 1) to meet the needs of internationalization of higher education, and has now grown into a major force in English-language teaching and research around the world (Hyland, 2006). Its concentration, according to Jordan (1997, p. 1), is on “those communicative skills in English which are required for study purposes in formal educational systems.”
