This subject adopts a language for specific purposes (LSP) framework. It begins from the premise that all language teaching involves the teaching of language for some specific purpose, and in some specific contect. Working within an LSP framework, we look at a range of theoretical and practical approaches to needs analyses and language curriculum design. Theoretical approaches include corpus linguistics, genre theory, and more socially critical approaches such as Academic Literacies. The subject will involve students collecting and analysing data (e.g. sample texts and interviews) to research the needs of learners and identify the discourses and practices of target communities in academic and professional contexts. Students will also participate in evaluating and developing LSP pedagogical materials and course syllabi.
