  3. 3. 3ESP COURSE DESIGN FOR TEACHERSChapter 1- Introduction1.1 What is ESP?"English for specific purposes is a term that refers to teaching or studying Englishfor a particularcareer (like law, medicine) or for business in general." (InternationalTeacher TrainingOrganization, 2005).There is a specific reason for which English islearned.ESP involves teaching and learning the specific skills and language needed by particular learnersfor a particular purpose. ESP students are usually adults who already have some acquaintancewith English and are learning the language in order to communicate a set of professional skillsand to perform particular job-related functions. An ESP program is therefore built on anassessment of purposes and needs and the functions for which English is required .The studentsabilities in their subject-matter fields, in turn, improve their ability to acquire English. Subject-matter knowledge gives them the context they need to understand the English of the classroom.In the ESP class, students are shown how the subject-matter content is expressed in English. Theteacher can make the most of the students knowledge of the subject matter, thus helping themlearn English faster. The learners potential are identified, and the required knowledge and skillare also taken into consideration while designing the course. The target situation such aspropensity, time, feasibility and technical resources are also taken into account. With theserequirements in mind, a course is designed and materials are chosen or specially designed.1.2 The Difference between ESP and EGP?The question of the difference between ESP and EGP has been addressed in the literature interms of theory and practice. Hutchinson and Waters (1987) state that there is no differencebetween the two in theory; however, there is a great deal of difference in practice. ESP differsfrom EGP in the sense that the words and sentences learned and the subject matter discussed areall relevant to a particular field or discipline. The design of syllabuses for ESP is directedtowards serving the needs of learners seeking for or developing themselves in a particularoccupation or specializing in a specific academic field. ESP courses make use of vocabularytasks related to the field such as negotiation skills and effective techniques for oral presentations.A balance is created between educational theory and practical considerations. ESP also increases
  4. 4. 4ESP COURSE DESIGN FOR TEACHERSlearners skills in using English.A deeper investigation, however, of the difference between the two is required. English forGeneral Purposes (EGP) is essentially the English language education in junior and senior highschools. Learners are introduced to the sounds and symbols of English, as well as to thelexical/grammatical/rhetorical elements that compose spoken and written discourse. There is noparticular situation targeted in this kind of language learning. Rather, it focuses on applicationsin general situations: appropriate dialogue with restaurant staff, bank tellers, postal clerks,telephone operators, English teachers, and party guests as well as lessons on how to read andwrite the English typically found in textbooks, newspapers, magazines, etc. EGP curriculumsalso include cultural aspects of the second language. EGP conducted in English-speakingcountries is typically called ESL, and EGP conducted in non-English-speaking countriesis normally called EFL. EGP is typically viewed as a level that precedes higher-level instructionin ESP if ESP programs are to yield satisfactory results.English for Specific Purposes, however, is that kind of English teaching that builds upon whathas been acquired earlier in EGP with a more restricted focus. It aims at acquainting learnerswith the kind of language needed in a particular domain, vocation, or occupation. In other words,its main objective is to meet specific needs of the learners. Of course, this indicates that there isno fixed methodology of ESP that can be applicable in all situations, but rather each situationand particular needs of learners belonging to a particular domain impose a certain methodologyof teaching.Thus, ESP is centered on the language appropriate to the activities of a given discipline.According to Hutchinson and Waters (1987:19), "ESP is an approach to language teaching inwhich all decisions as to content and method are based on the learners reason for learning." Inthis connection, Dudley-Evans (1998) explains that ESP may not always focus on the languagefor one specific discipline or occupation, such as English for Law or English for Engineering.University instruction that introduces students to common features of academic discourse in thesciences or humanities, frequently called English for Academic Purposes (EAP), is equally ESP.
  5. 5. 5ESP COURSE DESIGN FOR TEACHERSThe definitions of English for Specific Purposes (ESP) as conceptual term appeared in theliterature only in the 1960s. Hutchinson and Waters (cf. 1987, p.19) define ESP as an ―approach‖rather than a product, meaning that ESP does not involve a particular type of language, teachingmaterials or methodology.The learners and their purposes for learning English constitute the major difference between ESPand EGP. ESP learners are usually adults, who are familiar with the English language. ESPlearners are highly motivated because their needs are catered to. They are learning the languagein order to communicate professional information and to perform some particular, job-relatedfunctions. In ESP course, it is needs analysis that determines which language skills are useful forthe learners to be able to accomplish certain professional tasks (e g. for a tourist guide, coursesshould be focused on the speaking skills). ESP courses are centred on the context. The Englishlanguage is taught as a subject related to the learners‘ real needs and wishes in a particular fieldof human activity. The English language is usable immediately in the employment context. Thelearners are highly motivated as they are aware of their specific purposes for learning English.(cf. Chris Wright, 1992)The age of EGP learners varies from children to adults and learning the English language is thesubject of the courses. EGP courses are mostly focused on grammar, language structure andgeneral vocabulary. EGP courses are responsible to the general language acquisition and, for thevast majority of learners, they are extremelyuseful. EGP helps students to cope with any subject-matter course. It gives them the ability to generate more language. EGP learners, if well-taught,can use English to cope with the language in any undefined tasks. EGP courses deal with manydifferent topics and each of the four skills is equally treated. Due to the general nature of thesecourses no needs analysis is conducted.Aside from the rough separation at the definition level there is an overlapping connection andproportion between them. In order to clarify their relation Widdowson (1983) establishesdistinctive features of ESP and EGP.The most important EGP features are:1. The focus is often on education;2. As the learners‘ future needs are impossible to predict, the course content is more difficult toselect;
  6. 6. 6ESP COURSE DESIGN FOR TEACHERS3. Due to the above point it is important for the content in the syllabus to have a high surrendervalue.The most relevant ESP features are:1. The focus is on training;2. As English is intended to be used in specific vocational contexts, the selection of theappropriate content is easier;3. It is important for the content in the syllabus to have a high surrender value, most relevant tothe vocational context;4. The aim may be to create a restricted English competence.We consider that the two are highly interrelated. According to Hutchinson et al. (1987, p.53)the difference between the ESP and EGP approach is "in theory nothing, in practice a great deal".At the time, teachers of General English courses, while acknowledging that students had aspecific purpose for studying English, would rarely conduct a needs analysis to find out whatwas necessary to actually achieve it. Teachers nowadays, however, are much more aware of theimportance of needs analysis, and materials writers think very carefully about the goals oflearners at all stages of materials production. Perhaps this demonstrates the influence that theESP approach has had on English teaching in general.1.3 Difference between EAP and EOP?EAP was once called English for Educational Purposes (EEP) in the past. This term was usedwhen the concept was first introduced, and it is seldom used now after being replaced by theterm EAP. Coffey (1984, cited in Sager, 1998), describes EAP as a students need for ―quick andeconomical use of the English language to pursue a course of academic study‖ (p.4). Whereas forWei and Flaitz (2005), EAP is like a keyresponsibility‟ in assisting ESL (English as a SecondLanguage) students to develop the kind of English language proficiency that will lead to successin their academic endeavours.The difference between the EAP and EOP is that, EAP is the theoretical part , which is neededto understand or write academic papers. EAP course is more focused on the theory,methodology, concepts and lexicons; and all this takes place in the classroom, whereas EOP ismore oriented towards the application of this knowledge in the real context.
  7. 7. 7ESP COURSE DESIGN FOR TEACHERS1.4 HypothesisThe teachers of the elementary level of the government schools of Rawalpindi and Islamabad,who confront the difficulties in written or verbal communication in English language will be ableto improve their language skills.1.5 Objectives The basic objective to design ESP course is to enhance their speaking skills. The second objective on the study is to improve their knowledge of Grammar. The third objective to design An ESP course is to improve their expression. Final objective is to heighten their communicative skills.1.6 Significance of the study:The majority of our population is getting education from these government schools, so the futureof our nation depends upon these teachers. Our course will help these teachers to properlycommunicate in English. This study will enhance their competitive skills, and if these teacherswill be proficient enough to teach well, so their training will help the students to communicatewell in English.1.6 Delimitation of the study:The study has been conducted on the teachers of Elementary level of government schools ofRawalpindi and Islamabad; thus it only analyzes the needs of the learners by taking intoconsideration their present situations. The study cannot be used to interpret the teachers on thewhole, because their needs can vary according to their situation. Course design can subject tovarious changes with difference other than government elementary schools.
  8. 8. 8ESP COURSE DESIGN FOR TEACHERSChapter 2 - NEEDS ANALYSIS2.1 What is needs analysis?Needs analysis ‗provides a basis for setting goals and objectives‘ (Nunan and Lamb 1996: 27).Thus, the concept is worth examining in some detail: its definition and emergence in languageteaching as well as the tools for conducting a needs analysis. West (1997: 68) provides a briefoverview of the origin of needs analysis. According to his article, the term was first used in the1920-s, but because it referred to determining the needs of the general language learners, whostudied English simply for the sake of knowing English, it did not seem very relevant at that timeand did not linger. Its return is closely associated with the emergence of ESP in the 1970-s, sincewhen the scope of the concept has evolved and expanded. As a result, what is meant by needsanalysis has also gradually changed?Need is basically a gap between the present situation and the target situation.Jordan (1997: 26) quotes Bower (1980) who has noted the importance of learning needs:“If we accept…that a student will learn best if what he wants to learn, less well what he onlyneeds to learn, less well still what he either wants or needs to learn, it is clearly important toleave room in a learning programme for the learner’s own wishes regarding both goals andprocesses.”In more formal terms a need analysis is a process of determining the needs for which a learner orgroup of learners require a language and arranging the needs according to the priorities.The target needs:PERESENTSITUATIONTraining gapTARGETSITUATION
  9. 9. 9ESP COURSE DESIGN FOR TEACHERSTarget needs are general term which has several fields that will determine the need in ESP itself.There are three points:a. Necessity:These needs are determined by the demands of the target situation. It means what thelearner has to know in order to function effectively in the target situation. For example, a teacherneeds to understand about vocabulary, pronunciation and how to communicate effectively, etc.He or she will also need to know the linguistics features – discoursal, functional, structural,lexical, and most commonly used in the situations identified.b. Lack: It is required to know what the learner knows already, so that it can be decided thenwhich of the necessities the learners lack. According to what a learner already knows, weacknowledged that what necessities are missing. Knowing the lack of student will help a teacherto design appropriate course in study process. This is the gap between the existing proficiencyand the target proficiency.c. Wants: Hutchinson and Waters‘ (1987) definition of wants (perceived or subjective needs oflearners) corresponds to learning needs. Similar to the process used for target needs analysis,they suggest a framework for analyzing learning needs which consists of several questions, eachdivided into more detailed questions.According to what we have considered from an objective POV, we have to say that ― a need doesnot exist independent of a person. It is people who build their images of their need on the basis ofdata relating to themselves and their environment.2.2 Learning NeedsLearning needs are linked with the route‟ to the destination set by target situation. It is naïve tobase the course design and the whole ESP program merely on target needs. The methodological,ExistingProficiency GapTargetProficiency
  10. 10. 10ESP COURSE DESIGN FOR TEACHERSadministrative and psychological needs must occupy the same space in needs analysis as thetarget needs do. ESP learning is not a mechanical project to be imposed mechanically on thelearners. The whole ESP program is an enjoyable, pleasing, manageable, generative, creative andproductive activity.It is only possible when it is based on the full potential and constraints of both target needs andthe learning situation. It needs to be clear, at this point, that learning is a broader term thanlearner. Though, being the most fundamental building block, a learner is the central part, yet notthe whole of a learning process. There is much more in the overall learning process than just thelearner to consider. Altman and James (1980), though following the term of learner-centeredlanguage teaching, points out three main distinctions of the learning or learner-centered approachin comparison with curriculum-centered and teacher-centered instruction. In learner-centeredteaching approach, the needs and abilities of the learners determine the curriculum details andteaching requirements of the course. There are four main perspectives to view the learner-centered language teaching program: goals, means, rate, expectations. Further, the teachers aretrained in way they can fulfill the needs of learners.The framework proposed by Hutchinson and Waters (1987) for analysis of learning needs is thefollowing:1. Why are the learners taking the course?2. How do the learners learn?3. What sources are available?4. Who are the learners?2.3 A learning-centered approachHutchinson & Waters (1987) offer an often-cited learning-centered approach to ESP. They arguethat other approaches give too much attention to language needs, whereas more attention shouldbe given to how learners learn. They suggest that a learning needs approach is the best route toconvey learners from the starting point to the target situation. Learner needs are approached fromtwo directions; target needs and learning needs. Target needs are defined as ―what the learnerneeds to do in the target situation‖ (Hutchinson & Waters, 1987, p. 54). They are broken downinto three categories: necessities, lacks and wants.Learner needs also involve:• Teaching and learning styles with which the learners are familiar
  11. 11. 11ESP COURSE DESIGN FOR TEACHERS• Appropriate or ineffective teaching and learning methods• Knowledge of specialized contents that teachers should have• Suitable instructional materials and study location• Time of study and status of ESP courses• Expectations about what learners should achieve in the courses• How necessary the courses are for the learners2.4. Learner-centered approachesBerwick (1989) and Brindley (1989) are leaders in contributing learner-centered approaches toneeds analysis. Three ways to look at learner needs are offered: perceived vs. felt needs; productvs. process oriented interpretations; and objective vs. subjective needs. ‗Perceived needs‘ arefrom the perspective of experts while ‗felt needs‘ are from the perspective of learners (Berwick,1989). In the product-oriented interpretation, learner needs are viewed as the language thatlearners require in target situations. In the process-oriented interpretation, the focus is on howindividuals respond to their learning situation, involving affective and cognitive variables whichaffect learning.2.5 Methodology:A course for the teachers of Elementary level has been designed by taking into account thelearners interest, how, what, why, when and where they want to learn. This range ofacquaintance is important to design a significant course for the learners.2.5.1 Tools used to collect Data:Following information gathering procedures had been used to construct an authentic needsanalysis.Observations: The situation has been analyzed by examining the daily routine of theteachers, their activities like observing their process of teaching during the class, copingwith the issues of the students, dealing with other staff members and the outsiders.Formal interviews: The teachers were interviewed face to face. They were asked certainquestions regarding to what they need according to their present situation. Their responseand attitude was also recorded.Informal discussion: The teachers were asked that what should be the course contentaccording to their present situation and which timing would be feasible to them to attendthat course.
  12. 12. 12ESP COURSE DESIGN FOR TEACHERSQuestionnaires: The questionnaires were given to the teachers to fill; and through whichtheir needs, lacks and wants are determined.2.5.2 Sample:The research is based on 25 members of the teaching staff from different government schools.All of them are the female teachers ranging from 22-50. They belong to three levels of job,junior, middle and senior.2.6 Data Analysis1. The observations:demonstrate the routine of the teachers, and their needs which areobserved. While observation we come to know about their lacks and needs. During observationswe acknowledged that what should be the strategies for designing the course for them.2. Formal Interviews: When we interviewed the teachers of different of the governmentschools about their lacks, needs and wants, we came to be familiar with the fact that most of theteachers could not speak fluently rather they preferred to talk in Urdu. They were quite happythat someone has recognized their problems and that some effort is going to be done in order toimprove their writing and speaking skills. Majority of the teachers wanted to improve theirspeaking and writing skills. They said that they feel it difficult to communicate in English in theclass. Some of teachers wanted to improve their vocabulary, and some of them said that theywant to improve their pronunciation as well. They said that they want to improve their English inorder to cope with official meetings and they want to improve their social status by gainingproficiency in English. They said that course should focus on vocabulary activities which couldimprove their speaking skills and could enhance their confidence as well.3. Informal Discussion:In formal discussion with teachers, we came know that they can spare 1hour on weekends for ESP course. They also share their needs for ESP course they want us toinclude.4. Questionnaires:The questionnaires were filled out by 25 staff members of the teaching staffof the government schools of Rawalpindi and Islamabad.Following is the analysis of these questionnaires. The analysis of these questionnaire is dividedinto four sections. The first section is comprised on the closed ended questionnaire, and that

In this section they wereprovided with the open ended questions and were asked to fill it in two or three lines. In the lightof the open ended questions that were provided to them, we have analyzed that majority of thepeople found English speaking difficult. While discussion we analyzed that they even preferredto speak Urdu. As a teacher the main demand of their job was to be fluent in speaking English.They also found obstacles in using English grammar. They had insufficient vocabulary or if theyhad they didn‘t know the appropriate use of that vocabulary. Due to the lack of vocabulary, itwas difficult for them to express their thoughts. When they were asked about their demands forthe ESP course, they said that the grammar should be focused in the course. They also wanted toimprove their vocabulary and desired some exercise should be added to improve theirvocabulary. They also wanted to improve their communicative skills as well as expression.Workshops23%Seminars4%Lectures byexperts5%All of the above68%Q-10 WHAT KIND OF SESSION YOU THINK SHOULDBE THERE BESIDE TRAINING COURSE?

The findings are as follows:All of the four language skills - listening, reading, writing and speaking are need andrequired by the learner. Hence a course containing all four skills should be introduced.The major demand of the learner however is writing and speaking; thus the major focusof the course will be the areas of speaking and writing.Learners desired to be proficient in spoken, thus the course will also focus to improvetheir accents and pronunciation.The learners also wanted to improve their communication skills, they wanted to enhancetheir confidence level, so the exercises of our course will also focus to boost up theirconfidence level.The major concern to improve writing skills in English is for writing formally, so ourcourse content will also focus on the vocabulary, use of correct grammar, and expression.The learners find it feasible to spare one and half hour on weekend for this course.Therefore, the course will be designed for the duration of 1.5 hours every two days in aweek.02468101214Grammar Speaking Vocabulary Writing ReadingExcellent 4 4 2 6 13Good 9 10 14 14 6Fair 7 6 5 2 2Bad 0 0 0 0 0Present Situation Analysis

Learner centred approach of learning is considered as a major paradigm shiftin ESP teaching, that is why we have selected the learner centred approach to design thecourse. The focus will be the constructive role of the learner in order to make the learnerautonomous. The learners of the ESP course will take some responsibility for their ownlearning and will be invited to negotiate with some aspects of the course design, thesubject matter and the course content will be relevant for the learner as they feelmotivated to become more involved in their learning and will often seem to participatemore actively in classCHAPTER-3 (COURSE CONTENT AND SALLYBUS DESIGN)Days Activities Duration Aim RequirementWeek 1(Writing skills)Day-1 Unit-1:Important BuildingBlocks Of Grammar60-65 MIN To Give BasicKnowledge ForGrammar RulesIn this basic lecture on Basic grammar concepts with handouts will be given to studentsDay-2 Unit -2: Tenses 60-65 Overview of alltensesLecture and written exercises if Tenses will be givenWeek 2Day-1 Unit-3: How to write a letterand its types60-65 Min To fulfill teachersprofessional needsIn this activity lecture on how to write a letter, its types and exercise on to write a formal and informal

  36. 36. 36ESP COURSE DESIGN FOR TEACHERSUnit -8 How to write an EssayHow To Write an Essay can be viewed sequentially, as if going through ten sequential steps in anessay writing process, or can be explored by individual topic.1. Research: Begin the essay writing process by researching your topic, making yourself anexpert. Utilize the internet, the academic databases, and the library. Take notes and immerseyourself in the words of great thinkers.2. Analysis: Now that you have a good knowledge base, start analyzing the arguments of theessays youre reading. Clearly define the claims, write out the reasons, the evidence. Look forweaknesses of logic, and also strengths. Learning how to write an essay begins by learning howto analyze essays written by others.3. Brainstorming: Your essay will require insight of your own, genuine essay-writing brilliance.Ask yourself a dozen questions and answer them. Meditate with a pen in your hand. Take walksand think and think until you come up with original insights to write about.4. Thesis: Pick your best idea and pin it down in a clear assertion that you can write your entireessay around. Your thesis is your main point, summed up in a concise sentence that lets thereader know where youre going, and why.5. Outline: Sketch out your essay before straightway writing it out. Use one-line sentences todescribe paragraphs, and bullet points to describe what each paragraph will contain. Play withthe essays order. Map out the structure of your argument, and make sure each paragraph isunified.6. Introduction: Now sit down and write the essay. The introduction should grab the readersattention, set up the issue, and lead in to your thesis. Your intro is merely a buildup of the issue, astage of bringing your reader into the essays argument.7. Paragraphs: Each individual paragraph should be focused on a single idea that supports yourthesis. Begin paragraphs with topic sentences, support assertions with evidence, and expoundyour ideas in the clearest, most sensible way you can. Speak to your reader as if he or she weresitting in front of you. In other words, instead of writing the essay, try talking the essay.8. Conclusion: Gracefully exit your essay by making a quick wrap-up sentence, and then end onsome memorable thought, perhaps a quotation, or an interesting twist of logic, or some call toaction. Is there something you want the reader to walk away and do? Let him or her knowexactly what.

Read it again. Go on reading it until you understand it. Put down onpaper the main idea or ideas; make notes in the margins.Step 2: Read the passage again to make sure you haven‘t missed any important ideas.Step 3: Referring to your notes if you need to, but not to the original, write a rough summary ofthe passage. By not looking at the original, you will avoid copying; you will be forced to put theideas into your own words.Step 4: Read your précis. Ask yourself the following questions—Activity:Write a precise of Newspaper column.

  46. 46. 46ESP COURSE DESIGN FOR TEACHERSUnit-18 Strategies of readingThink About What You Want to KnowBefore you start reading anything, ask yourself why youre reading it. Are you reading with apurpose, or just for pleasure? What do you want to know after youve read it?Once you know your purpose, you can examine the resource to see whether its going to helpyou.For example, with a book, an easy way of doing this is to look at the introduction and the chapterheadings. The introduction should let you know who the book is intended for, and what it covers.Chapter headings will give you an overall view of the structure of the subject.Know How Deeply to Study the MaterialWhere you only need the shallowest knowledge of a subject, you can skim material. Here youread only chapter headings, introductions, and summaries.If you need a moderate level of information on a subject, then you can scan the text. This is whenyou read the chapter introductions and summaries in detail. You can then speed read thecontents of the chapters, picking out and understanding key words and conceptsRead ActivelyWhen youre reading a document or book in detail, it helps if you practice "active reading" byhighlighting and underlining key information, and taking notes(member-only article) as youprogress. (Mind Maps are great for this). This emphasizes information in your mind, and helpsyou to review important points laterKnow How to Study Different Types of MaterialDifferent types of documents hold information in different places and in different ways, and theyhave different depths and breadths of coverage.By understanding the layout of the material youre reading, you can extract the information youwant efficiently.Magazines and NewspapersThese tend to give a fragmented coverage of an area. They will typically only concentrate on themost interesting and glamorous parts of a topic - this helps them boost circulation! As such, theywill often ignore less interesting information that may be essential to a full understanding of asubject, and they may include low value content to "pad out" advertising
