Approaches to English for Specific and Academic Purposes - Perspectives on Teaching and Assessing in Tertiary and Adult Education

Idioma: EN

Enviado por Hakan YANDIM

The teaching of English for specific purposes (ESP) is an activity within English language teaching (ELT) and can be traced back to the 1960s when unparalleled developments in the scientific, economic, and technological fields created a huge demand for English. This demand concerned a clear need for specific English and so the teaching and learning of English particularly to adults started to shift from general English for no particular purpose with a predominantly grammatical syllabus to a more functional syllabus providing language and skills training for specific professional and academic needs. This shift in focus towards ESP aimed “to help language learners cope with the features of language or to develop the competencies needed to function in a discipline, profession, or workplace” (Basturkmen, 2005, p. 6)
