We would like to present a new quarterly supplement for who are interested in English for specific purpose including Academic English, Business English, Technical and any engineering branches. This is for readers who want to know and expand their horizons in the ESP field.
In the literature, ESP has been claimed to be as ‘vocabulary teaching’ or ‘an approach in EFL’. These notions are very old now and we want to show what ESP means. We will share here ESP teachers’ experiences in the classroom. learners’ needs and how to meet those needs. In short, we want to publish ‘what works in the classroom’ rather than studies or researches.
We want this magazine to be informative, a voice for ESP Teachers and a contribution to the ESP field. Therefore, please send your classroom experiences, effective teaching methods/approaches and share it with other colleagues from all over the world.

After a successful conference
This is the 3rd year of the conference. The conference took place on 3-7 July 2017, Nis, Serbia and Nis University hosted this amazing ESP Conference and summer school. The conference runs every two years, generally in Niš, and is thoroughly recommended to all who have an interest in the subject. Aside from having excellent content, this was superbly organised by Nadezda Stojkovic and ESP Organising Team. There were delegates from Japan, China, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and European countries. The number of the attendees show that the event was very well received as a valuable, stimulating, and enjoyable particularly with different workshops which present innovative ideas and suggestions in ESP .From IESPTA‘s perspective the conference provided a great opportunity to address its aims related to bringing together information about the association (IESPTA) and encouraging dialogue across the members of IESPTA.
We all enjoyed the Gala dinner hosted by University of Nis, cocktail party with Jazz by Andreja Language Institute. From Pro_Mens, Dunisca Milosavljevic presented amazing interactive presentation-workshop about Fast Forward Reading. Adel Ali showed us how creativity can be useful in the classroom although it takes time. And there were many others being worth watching and listening.
