It has been a long journey to achieve this great book. The volume reflects fundamental research perspectives in ESP in a wide range of ESP settings around the world. In addition, it provides examples of how ESP theories can converge with other language learning settings and research areas such as CLIL. The chapters in this book, which help us gain insights into the current practices, challenges and innovations in ESP instruction and research, are organized into four parts: (1) Explorations and challenges in ESP, (2) ESP instruction for specific skills and competencies, (3) Professional development for ESP Instructors and, (4) ESP in CLIL and EAP. This book will be of interest to practitioners, teacher educators and researchers working in the field of ESP, as well as readers interested in language education and curriculum development more broadly. 

The book will come out in January 2020! For pre order, click here.
