Studying English for Specific Purposes
Updated: Jun 4
English for Specific Purposes (ESP) is a learner-centered approach to teaching English as a second language that focuses on the learners’ specific needs and goals. The key difference is between the students and their purposes for learning English. English for Specific Purposes covers subjects such as English for Hospitality, English for Business, English for Tourism, enabling students to master skills relevant to their professional needs and aspirations.
The ability to communicate effectively in English is essential for international professional success. While General English courses allow students to become fluent in the language, an English for Specific Purposes (ESP) course provides a course tailored to the learner's needs and the demands of their career.
