ESP for the University

Average: 3 (1 vote)

This book, from 1986, provides a snapshot of developments in ESP teaching at university level during the 1970s and early 1980s.

In his Preface, Christopher Brumfit challenged a recent claim that ESP had ‘legitimised English teaching’, suggesting rather that it had made English teaching ‘more purposeful’. The papers in this book include an extensive one on task-based learning, and all are focused on practical solutions.
