These are bespoke courses focusing on functional English as used in the workplace in a particular industry. Among other things, students are trained to discuss work-related issues with their future partners and colleagues while expanding relevant terminology and functional language.
ESP concentrates more on language in context than on teaching grammar and language structures. It covers subjects varying from accounting or computer science to tourism and business management. The ESP focal point is that English is not taught as a subject separated from the students’ real world (or wishes); instead, it is integrated into a subject matter area important to the learners.
