What are English for Specific Purposes courses?

English for Specific Purposes (ESP) courses focus on developing English communication skills in a specific discipline, such as marketing, finance, human resources, management, strategic thinking, and engineering.

Emphasis is placed on the language and communication requirements in a particular professional field.

This field-specific language communication training enables participants to master relevant communication and professional skills and to meet the needs of industry locally and internationally.

Knowledge and technical know-how are clearly important, but these must be presented with a focus on achieving excellent standards of communication skills.

After all, your success is not only based on what you know but also on how you can communicate that knowledge. Communication skills are considered one of the best career enhancers and evidence suggests that employers in all occupational fields place greater value on an employee’s communication skills than they do on his or her technical skills and rate it as a top priority for both securing and retaining employment.

When you join an ESP course and you will be able to:

  • Access the specific vocabularies of your company, industry and functional area and understand how to employ this vocabulary in specific business situations
  • Use the appropriate style and tone for your professional discipline
