TUJ Osaka Distinguished Lecturer Series: English for Specific Purposes

Date: Saturday, October 31st, 2015 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Jean Parkinson (Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand)

UPDATE: We incorrectly listed the date for this event as Oct 25th. Please note that the event will take place October 31st in Osaka.

English for Specific Purposes (ESP) is an approach to language teaching in which the learners' content specialty is foregrounded in teaching. ESP is particularly employed in teaching students at tertiary level who are studying through the medium of English as their second language. Because English is widely used as an international language, is it also important for those engaged in business internationally, as well as for those who need to read and write texts in English, attend meetings and conferences, or collaborate with groups who don't share their first language.

The Temple University Distinguished Lecturer Series brings internationally-recognized TESOL scholars to TUJ for intensive weekend seminars. Each seminar can be taken for elective credit for the master's and doctoral degrees. The first three hours of each Saturday session are free and open to the public. Weekend seminars are free for M.S.Ed. and Ed.D. alumni of Temple University, Japan Campus; the fee for other weekend auditors is 13,000 yen. Please see the TUJ Distinguished Lecturer Series for full details.
