English for Specific Purposes

English for Specific Purposes

English language training that is tailored to a specific industry, profession or purpose.

ESP differs from Business English (BE) – BE covers the language generally used in business, while ESP covers language used in a specific industry or field, for example, aviation or law.

ESP language courses can be adapted to a range of industries, professions and situations. This training is suitable for individuals or groups who need to develop their language ability and skills pertaining to a given situation.

The training facilitates workforce, community or personal development through training skills in a specific workplace or environment; improving career prospects; enhancing capacity of organisations; and building communities.

The training is designed according to the language purpose and needs of the learner(s). Organisations and individuals who benefit from this type of training include those working in healthcare, aviation, law, community development, journalism, teaching, sales, customer services and facilitation.

TKW has worked with businesses and organisations including the famous Groote Schuur Hospital - where Christiaan Barnard carried out the world’s first heart transplant; NGOs involved with community development such as Southern Africa Sustainable Development Initiative (SASDI) and iThemba Lanbantu; government and private schools; publishers including Associated Media Publishing; and international organisations such as the International Federation of Workers' Education Associations (IFWEA).

Course Details

English for Specific Purposes can take the form of a group class or one-to-one tuition, and can be delivered in-house or on-site, depending on the situation.

Classes are scheduled to fit in with clients’ needs and the course material sourced, designed and adapted to produce the desired outcomes. This makes the training flexible and suited to providing targeted assistance in a wide range of situations.

Previously, we have collaborated with a diverse range of organisations, including NGO’s and corporations, to develop communication skills, enhancing capacity and prospects.
