Authors : Sekhri Ouided . Noui Hadjer .

Abstract

The teaching of English for Specific Purposes has been seen as an activity which is separated from English Language Teaching. For that, teachers of Language for Specific Purposes have a lot in common with teachers of general foreign language. It has been assumed that if one discipline which is ELT has developed its own methodology, ESP will follow it. However, this is not always the case because the theories of teaching are going to be applied differently between ELT and ESP. For both disciplines, it is worth considering linguistic developments and teaching theories to have insights in contemporary ideas regarding their own position and role as well as the position and role of foreign language learners in education and to face new technologies offered as an aid to improve their methodology. In this paper, we are going to focus on the importance of learning and teaching ESP as a crucial discipline of ELT, its types, features of ESP courses, and the role of ESP teachers
