Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Language Acquisition; Pragmatics; Sociolinguistics

Subject Language(s): English

Meeting Description:

As the reasons to learn English have become more specific, the challenges of making content and methods relevant for ESP students have become even greater. This conference will focus on the three components of English for Specific Purposes: language, specificity and purpose.

How can we inspire and motivate our students to reach both their personal and professional potential? In which ways can technology serve as an ESP teacher’s tool to help achieve this? How can we most effectively meet students’ specific needs for English in multicultural societies?

We will be focusing on these issues in talks, workshops and poster presentations. Every area of ESP is encouraged, including all types of engineering and technical fields, and English for business, law, management, medicine, social work, tourism, sport, etc.

By sharing a variety of strategies and approaches, we will create a forum that will enhance the professional development of teachers, materials developers, testers, course book designers and all those involved in any area of specific-purpose language teaching.
