This book provides comprehensive coverage of this subject including contextual backgrounds, course design, language features, specific disciplinary focusses, genre, corpus-based approaches, critical approaches, and assessment.
This book is key reading for students taking courses in English for Specific Purposes, Applied Linguistics, TESOL, TEFL and CELTA.
