Introducing Course Design in English for Specific Purposes is an accessible and practical introduction to the theory and practice of developing ESP courses across a range of disciplines. The book covers the development of courses from needs analysis to assessment and evaluation, and also comes with samples of authentic ESP courses provided by leading ESP practitioners from a range of subject and global contexts. Included in this book are:

  • The basics of ESP course design
  • The major current theoretical perspectives on ESP course design
  • Tasks, reflections and glossary to help readers consolidate their understanding
  • Resources for practical ESP course development
  • Examples of authentic ESP courses in areas such as business, aviation and nursing

Introducing Course Design in English for Specific Purposes is essential reading for pre-service and in-service teachers, and students studying ESP and applied linguistics.

We are Rated Excellent on Trustpilot
Here's what you say about us...

Lindy Woodrow is Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Sydney, Australia.

A definite advantage of the volume is that its transparent structure makes it easy to read and navigate for less experienced readers - for example students or teachers who are taking their first steps in the realm of ESP.


The last section, which offers a range of authentic examples of course designs, is very rare in the subject literature and thus is extremely valuable.



Without any doubt, the book meets the reader's expectations and fills an existing gap in ESP literature, providing necessary support for those who are starting their work as ESP teachers as well as those who already have experience in the field and would like to refresh or extend their knowledge on ESP course design.
