Temple University Japan:

Distinguished Lecturer Series (Seminar 1, Osaka): ESP (English for Specific Purposes) for EFL Environments: Concepts, Convenient Tools, and Challenges

Date: Saturday, September 30th, 2006 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Judy Noguchi (Mukogawa University and Osaka Graduate School of Engineering)

English for Specific Purposes (ESP) is a multidisciplinary approach that offers promising possibilities for an EFL educational environment. Unfortunately, ESP is often mistaken as simply being the drilling of technical terms and grammatical structures for science and technology majors or the teaching of business, legal or other types of special English. ESP actually can offer a viable approach for enabling tertiary-level or adult language learners to efficiently acquire a sufficient level of mastery in the communicative forms of language required for their professional or occupational needs. When presented as an approach to observing and classifying such linguistic needs, ESP can also help equip students with the tools necessary to continue their linguistic development outside the classroom.
