English for Specific Purposes
English for Special Purposes
English for Strategic Purposes
Across Asia a surging interest in ESP courses has emerged. Since its inception, ESP strove to establish itself as an independent branch of applied linguistics and the evidence suggests this is now occurring in increasing frequency. Demand from the Asian business sector and student communities have raised the field of ESP and underpinning theories about who teaches it and who should actually teach ESP courses and prepare course curriculum's. ESP conferences and symposiums are becoming more frequent. Yet ESP courses in the past have been downplayed on the grounds of lacking a rigorous academic theory. Recently growing emphasis has been placed on ESP teaching in universities across China. TESOL Asia will bring together ESP practitioners from across the world with an interest in ESP and its growth.
