English for Specific Purposes (ESP) is one of the most needed forms of English Language Teaching with regards to the adult population in today's global market economy where the English language is a prerequisite for the exchange and communication of professional ideas, best practices, and experiences, and a necessary skill for advancement in one's career. This comprehensive volume brings together the most insightful papers from the First International Conference on Teaching English for Specific and Academic Purposes, titled "Connect and Share", held at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering of the University of Nis, Serbia, in May 2013. The collection covers a diverse and extensive list of topics, and provides a number of invaluable contributions which prove the presence of ESP in all continents, and in many different professions, sciences, and businesses. Also of interest is the fact these papers highlight the interrelatedness of ESP and linguistics, the methodology of teaching, sociolinguistics, and a number of other fields relevant to the study and practice of languages. The chapters of this book prove that immense, original, creative and worthwhile research is being conducted in the ever-growing and increasingly relevant field of ESP. At the same time, the book also offers rich insights into many innovative teaching practices that justify ESP as an important area of academic study.
