The Second ESP Conference, ESP Oxford, Oxford University, 1-2 June 2018

English for Specific Purposes has now gained substantial body of practice and disciplinary research that differentiate it as an authentic area within the corpus of the study of English language as ultimately responsive to the realities of the professional and scientific surrounding spanning the world. There is a notable emergence of dedicated publications, special interest groups, trainings, conventions.
