Reviews

“The book is clearly organized and user-friendly throughout with concise writing. Each chapter begins with bullet points of what the chapter will accomplish, highlights key concepts and quotes from prominent scholars with different perspectives, and ends with concluding comments and discussion questions for further thinking. … Language for Specific Purposes can be used as required or supplemental reading material for graduate-level courses and is highly recommended to all scholars interested in learning more about LSP.” (Sayaka Morita, JALT Journal, Vol. 39 (1), May, 2017)

“Language for Specific Purposes is an excellent resource for readers interested in LSP from the perspective of study, practice or research. With its well-researched discussion of key topics and unique examples from all over the world, this book has something to offer for both novices and those with previous knowledge of LSP. … Language for Specific Purposes remains a valuable resource for those interested in language testing and assessment within the field of LSP.” (Adam Koschade, Papers in Language Testing and Assessment, Vol. 5 (2), 2016)
