Six things you'd forgotten you knew about teaching ESP
When: 5th Nov, 14.15 - 15.00
Where: Room forum 10
The history of Business English teaching has seen a gradual movement from general to specific.
In the past, we made do with general English and a sprinkling of specialist vocabulary; but as international business environments become more demanding, the next generation workplace requires a much more integrated approach. How can we meet the growing need to develop a full range of communication skills within a specialist field? Using examples from Macmillan's new In Company ESP series, this workshop will review half a dozen key principles we cannot afford to forget.
Examples will be taken from In Company 3.0 ESP series and inspection copies of selected ESP series titles will be offered to lucky participants at John’s workshop.
John Allison has designed, sold and delivered professional English courses in France since 1980. He is the author of In Company Case Studies with Mark Powell, The Business with Paul Emmerson, and the new In Company 3.0 ESP series on Supply Chain Management and Logistics with Jeremy Townend.
