ABOUT THIS BOOK

In the United States today there is lively discussion, both among educators and employers, about the best way to prepare students with high-level language and cross-cultural communication proficiency that will serve them both professionally and personally in the global environment of the twenty-first century. Language for Specific Purposes, which is one response to this discussion, models curricula for language programs based on practical language skills specific to a profession or field, and reinforces those models with national survey results, demonstrating the demand for LSP instruction.

With ten original research-based articles, this volume will be of interest to high school and university language and culture educators, program directors, linguists, and anyone looking to design LSP courses or programs in any world language.
