Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

The ESP literature, as emphasized in the most recent seminal paper of Helen Basturkmen (2021), is “rich in case studies of teaching that report practices in one setting” (p.5). And Towards a New Paradigm for English Language Teaching: English for Specific Purposes in Asia and Beyond, a volume co-edited by Hajime Terauchi, Judy Noguchi and Akira Tajino, is one example. This volume is a collection of contributions that look into a practical approach to English for Specific Purposes (ESP) classroom that underscores the importance of instilling into language learners the awareness and acceptance of reality towards achieving their goals and acquiring solid language skills.
