Abstract:

English for Occupational Purposes examines the field of teaching
English in occupational settings as a particular instance of general
workplace training and development. It is the first book to unite
scholarship on workplace English with general training.

The book uses case studies and surveys from various occupational contexts
to ask whether English for Occupational Purposes and general training use
the same "language" in articulating their curricular and instructional
development. The main focus of the study is on business organizations,
specifically in South Korea, where English has become an integral part of
business both in the workplace, in business to business negotiations, and
in professional training.

This fascinating monograph will be of interest to researchers in English
for specific purposes and applied linguistics as well as scholars of
workplace education.

Author
Dr Dan Kim is coordinator of the English writing program in Global Business
Administration, at Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul, Korea.

Review
"English for Occupational Purposes (EOP) is an exploding field of enquiry
and practice. On the surface, it seems to be a fusion of two disciplines:
the teaching of English as a Foreign Language and general occupational
training. Dan Kim's seminal book explores that apparent fusion, and reports
a far more complex narrative. The deeply personal stories told here demand
new collaboration between English and general trainers."
-Fred Davidson, Associate Professor, English as an International Language,
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA
