Asian Research on English for Specific Purposes
English for Specific Purposes (ESP), addressing the communicative needs and practices of particular professional or occupational groups, has developed rapidly in the past fifty years and is now a major force in English language teaching and research. This critical volume helps innovate the theory, practice, and methodology for ESP teaching and research in Asian countries and areas. Promoting communication and enhancing cooperation on ESP research and pedagogy across cultures, it provides ESP scholars, educators and practitioners with an opportunity to benefit from each other’s research and expertise in an age of globalization and digitalization. The volume provides an in-depth analysis of the latest scholarship on English teaching and research for general and specific academic and occupational purposes; the intercultural communication in ESP contexts; corpus linguistics and data-driven instruction for ESP; computer-assisted language learning and mobile-assisted language learning; evaluation of English writing courses; and ESP translation strategies.
