English for Specific Purposes College & University Education Research-Oriented Short Presentation

This paper investigates EFL college students’ perceptions and evaluations of an English for specific purposes (ESP) tourism course design based on a learner-centered approach which incorporates authentic tasks, situated learning and multiple assessments. A questionnaire was administered to a total of 110 non-English majors in a local tourism course offered from 2014-2018. Students’ positive response also indicates the need to acquire skills to achieve a two-way communication for cross-cultural understanding.
