In the 21st century global village, the English teacher trainers want their learners to learn English in a practical manner by allowing them to develop their real world English so that they can cater to the needs of their personal and professional world. Therefore, English language teaching and learning is subject to tremendous change. Unlike other subjects, English language teaching has undergone and tested multiple methodologies. These ‘changing winds and shifting sands of time and research are turning the desert into a longed-for oasis’.

Learning and teaching English for specific and social purposes is an approach that began to develop after World War II and has shown continued growth both theoretically and methodologically.

 English for Specific Purposes (ESP) and for Social Purposes has been one of the most prominent and fruitful areas of ESL teaching. This approach not only makes our young learners employable and competitive in our present society but also increases their awareness of diversity and intercultural competence.  Therefore, language teaching and planning should aim at the effectiveness and ability of the learners in communication skills in their specific professions and social purposes.
