Establishing the Predominant Position of ESP within Adult ELT 3 rd International ESP Conference and Summer School
University of Niš, Serbia
We are pleased to announce the third International ESP Conference and Summer School organized and hosted by the University of Niš, 3 – 7 July 2017.
This event is to establish a new scholarly gathering format, giving significant amount of time to participants to fully present their research and expertise, and for discussions to be truly constructive. Instead of dashing from the airport and between sessions, participants are to have a dignified possibility to show the results of their research and practice that has most often taken serious and long lasting efforts. Collegial interaction is another, almost equally relevant, creative and fruitful segment of a gathering, and here it will be allotted proper possibilities and time frame. The purpose of this gathering is to promote English for Specific Purposes (ESP), its rising importance and presence among the adult population of ELT, to exchange ideas and practices in this field. We invite scholars, lecturers, researchers, and students with experience and interest in this field to join us in summer 2017, at a showcase and exchange of cutting edge research and practice of ESP and language learning technologies.
John I Liontas, Making a Mountain Out of ESP: Unearthing Idiomaticity Buried Beneath the Surface
In keeping with the conference’s theme, Establishing the Predominant Position of ESP within Adult ELT, this keynote investigates the many theoretical and practical ways the predominant position of ESP may be established within adult ELT. In so doing, the keynote shall purposefully “make a mountain out of ESP” by unearthing important matters of idiomaticity believed to be buried just beneath the surface of ESP. Accompanied by an amazing cast of mind-blowing images worthy of a thousand words each, this keynote aims to deliver a breathtaking landscape of ideas and pedagogical constructs in order to establish the predominant position of ESP within adult ELT.
We would like to invite anyone who wants to improve and/or exchange teaching ideas to come, whether intending to present or not.
