Global Resources and Leadership Development in ESP: Sharing ESP Blogs

Hello ESPers worldwide!

This will be a short communication as TESOL 2012 is nearly here, and I know that some of our colleagues have already left for Philadelphia.

Before I make the long trip myself, I wanted to share with you the blog of Evan Frendo titled English for the workplace: Sharing thoughts with teachers and trainers of business English and ESP.

I was especially pleased when Evan informed me that his blog has a page containing links to other blogs that may be of interest to ESPers worldwide: Check it out!

Finally, I have high hopes that TESOL 2012 will be a milestone in the creation of an ESP global resource center.  Be sure to attend the Open Meeting of the TESOL ESP Interest Section on Thursday, 29 March from 5 to 6:30 pm in Room 105-A of the Convention Center.

I look forward to seeing many of you in person soon, and I’ll be online again after the TESOL Convention!
