TEACHING ENGLISH FOR SPECIFIC PURPOSES: AN EXPERIMENT

R.S. Stan

University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine (ROMANIA)
The current paper is the result of an experiment, which took place at a university of agriculture, and launches a methodological challenge to teachers of English, a challenge that consists of teaching English for Specific Purposes under special circumstances in an academic environment. The professional purpose is not only the shaping of future engineers or economists, but also the desire to make language classes useful, interesting, and attractive. The originality of the experiment consists of moving the language classes from the usual classroom into the students' placement, where they perform their practical work. The acquisition of terminology becomes a component element of the students' concerns and comes as a necessity since the professional environment increasingly involves certain accomplishments; the students' universe has no limits regarding the power of information conveyed in the foreign language. Moreover, the course taught under such circumstances requires flexibility from the teacher in his choice of methods and techniques, but also the obligation to stick to the requirements of the curriculum.
