Abstract
Language learning does not only involve acquiring grammatical structure but also its function. It is important for engineering students to be able to present their ideas, exchange their opinions or follow technological developments all over the world. Most universities have been offering ESP courses besides the general English lessons to boost their confidence in this field. When we talk about specific methodology, we mean all language aspects from reading complex articles to making a presentation. When we chose a method to be used in ESP classroom we should think of our group of learners and adapt one method with our teaching materials. Hutchinson and Waters (1987) claimed that there is no specific methodology for ESP. The same principles apply with ELT methodology in general. So is there a specific method for ESP? How do we teach? Do we use a specific method to teach technical words.
