Title: Professional English in the European Context: The EHEA Challenge
Edited By: ÁngelesLindeLópez

URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=430088
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 109
Description:

More than ever, professional English is now cruising towards an enormous
challenge in the European university context due to the extremely
significant moment we are living in the European Higher Education Area
(EHEA). The European convergence process is demanding immediate
reflections, serious analyses, and profound reforms in specialized language
teaching that lead to reach Bologna standards by 2010.
This book aims to present an overview of professional English in the
current academic landscape in Europe. It intends to shed light on a range
of issues, both theoretical and practical, related to ESP, focusing on
discourse analysis, corpus analysis, information and communication
technologies, methodological approaches, curriculum design, and empirical
research into language learning in broad terms. Because teachers need to be
researchers and inquirers, this overview thus makes a contribution to the
professional English field with the purpose of highlighting several
important questions in the entire ESP academic mainstream. Scholars from
different European universities explore specialized languages and document
ESP teaching methodologies at university levels from a multidimensional
perspective.
