needs of (mostly) adult learners who need to learn a foreign language for use in their specific fields, such as science, technology, medicine,
leisure, and academic learning. This course is recommended for students of teacher candidate professionals who wish to learn how to design ESP

courses and programs in an area of specialization such as English for business, for Civil Engineering, for Academic Purposes, and for health
service purposes. In addition, they are introduced to ESP instructional strategies, materials adaptation and development, and evaluation.
Evaluation
Students will be evaluated on the bases of class activities, mid-semester test, end-semester assignment, and final test. The proportion of the evaluation is :

1. Class discussions
2. Assignments
3. Presentations
