Global Resources and Leadership Development in ESP: An ESP Article to be Shared Worldwide!

Hello ESPers worldwide!

In the TESOL ESP IS, we are grateful for the opportunity to publish in the journal of the IATEFL English for Specific Purposes Special Interest Group titled Professional and Academic English that Mark Krzanowski, Prithvi Shrestha, and the IATEFL ESP SIG have provided.

In this regard, I was very happy when Shahid Abrar-ul-Hassan offered to share his recent article on ESP with the world via the TESOL Resource Center (TRC).

Abrar-ul-Hassan, S. (2012). State-of-the-art review: Revisiting the ins and outs of ESP practice. Professional and Academic English, 39, 4-11.

As many of you probably know, Shahid is a past chair of the ESP IS and now serves on a TESOL committee.

The article itself is a detailed look (based on the literature) at the “principled ESP” in the TESOL ESP IS PowerPoint submitted to the TRC.

Therefore, I strongly encourage you to read this article and to contact me if you have any resources that you would like to share worldwide!

FYI – Actually, three articles by TESOL members appear in Issue 39, including one by Akiko Tsuda (“Developing an ESP Course and Materials for Dietitians”) and one by me (“TESOL ESPIS Community Discussions 2011-2012″).

I’ll see you next week!
