Language for Specific Purposes Program-Development and Implementation of a Vocation-Specific Language Acquisition Course of Study.
This presentation, intended to help English for Specific Purposes (ESP) instructors, covers the following areas: (1) classifying and selecting students for the program, (2) making a needs assessment of material to be taught, (3) setting up a language support program, (4) developing appropriate materials for a preparation class and a language support class to assure success during occupational training, and (5) teaching these materials effectively and efficiently. A number of sample lesson plans and reproductions of lesson materials, such as reading passages, student exercises, and dialogs are included as well as steps one might follow in developing ESP material. The emphasis here is on health-field related occupations. The suggestions for lesson development are appropriate for both teacher-centered and learner-centered environments. (Author/AMH)
