Book Information

   

Title: Ideas and Options in English for Specific Purposes
Series Title: ESL & Applied Linguistics Professional Series
Description:

This volume presents a range of views about language, learning, and
teaching in English for Specific Purposes (ESP). Its purpose is to go
beyond individual cases and practices to examine the approaches and ideas
on which they are based. The aim is for readers to adopt an analytical
stance toward the field and to identify current perspectives in ESP and the
ideas driving them.

"Ideas and Options in English for Specific Purposes" does not promote any
one approach, but rather identifies and illustrates those in evidence
today. The main emphasis is on the links between theory and ESP teaching
and research. Ideas from linguistics, sociolinguistics, education, SLA, and
social theories are described. Links are then made between these ideas and
ESP course designs, instructional materials, and research projects. Thus
the book moves back and forth between descriptions of theories, teaching
practice, and research.

This text is geared toward graduate-level TESOL education courses.
