The philosophy chosen by the author is the student at the very centre of the learning process, A discussion of important distinctions includes: the similarities and differences of ESP to GE, the role of the teacher, the concept of materials and learning factors, the importance of skills, syllabus and course design, and the notions of assessment and evaluation. The book has been written as teacher friendly as possible, offering practical tips and ideas, hoping to assure and be supportive to teachers entering the Brave New World of ESP.
