The ESP landscape has always been diverse and specialized. As the current challenges and expectations facing students and instructors evolve, differences between courses appear to be multiplying.

However, in reality we have a wealth of highly relevant, extremely transferable skills and expertise which are often overlapping - the “common ground” in ESP. We invite you to share your experience and experiences in this dynamic and evolving field.
