English for specific purposes

Globalisation is not the most elegant term, but it's a reality that can open many doors – for young lawyers setting out on their careers in big-city law firms, doctors sharing their expertise across national and linguistic boundaries, engineers working on intercontinental projects or bankers at home in the financial capitals of the world. And there's little doubt a good command of English is the key to unlocking those doors.

As English for specific purposes (ESP) teachers, our task is to help our students meet that challenge. Our special interest group's aim is to provide a forum for ESP teachers to share what we have in common, swap what we don't, and support and encourage all those setting out on the ESP road.
