ISBN 978190109517-3


This collection of papers illustrates the diverse problems facing countries in the developing world as they struggle with English for Specific Purposes (ESP) and English for Academic Purposes (EAP). The 21 papers are a mixture of background information concerning significant factors in the disciplines previously mentioned as well as best conventions in performing specific tasks and functions. The 18 countries range from African countries such as Angola, Ghana and South Africa to countries from Asia, such as Cambodia, the Philippines and Thailand. There are also countries from the Middle East and South America. Due to space, not all the papers can be reviewed; however, this review concentrates on the four main regions: Africa, Asia, the Middle East and South America.
