2. Objectives

3. Teaching strategies

3.1. Input-based

3.1.1. Predominantly input Learning occurs primarily through exposure to samples of language use. No explicit instruction from teachers.

3.1.2. Input-to-output Ss are provided with input, notice the language forms and features.

3.2. Output-based

3.2.1. Predominantly output Learners are placed in the situations that require them to perform production tasks at the outset of a lesson. Learning occurs through students struggling to communicate and being pushed to reach their linguistic ceilings.

3.2.2. Output-to-input Learner's production (output) is followed by feedback (Ss perform a task and feedback is provided to show a more native-like performance. During production, Ss experience a hole in linguistic repertoire and are offered a solution in the form of feedback)

4. Learners

4.1. Concrete: games, pictures, videos, talk in pairs and practice E outside of the class

4.2. Analytical: grammar, E books, study alone, find their own mistakes

4.3. Communicative: listen to native speakers, use E out of class, learn by conversation

4.4. Teacher-oriented: teacher explains everything, learn words by reading and seeing them

5. Effective ESP teaching

5.1. Acquire relevant knowledge about students and use that knowledge to inform our course design and classroom teaching

5.2. Articulate explicit expectations regarding learning objectives and policies

5.3. Prioritize the knowledge and skills we choose to focus on

5.4. Recognize and overcome our expert blind spots

5.5. Adopt suitable teaching roles to support our learning goals

5.6. Progressively refine our courses based on reflection and feedback

5.7. Align the three main components of instruction: learning objectives, assessments, and instructional activities
