In a world where everything (us) happens with the speed of thought, and the results are good to appear immediately, if not since yesterday, the practices of learning and teaching foreign languages ​​must adapt and keep pace with the natural course. of things. 21st century students are demanding and accustomed to the hectic pace of information flowing to them continuously from virtual environments and need methods, tools and practices to facilitate their acquisition of a foreign language in the rhythm in (and with) that they are used to living.
The ESP eWorkBook is an effective work tool, which, together with eGlossary (Academic Vocabulary and ESP Terms), are intended for students of the Faculty of Political Science, specializations in Political Science, Law, International Relations, Sociology and Psychology, who study Specialized Languages ​​/ ESP (ie English for Specific Purposes).
Blended Learning and Flipped Classroom, together with ITEM (Interactive Transformational Educational Model) and CLI (Controlled Linguistic Immersion) are methods, models and practices that the ESP course proposes as a modus operandi for the entire duration of ESP courses, where eWorkBook and eGlossary represents the working tools.
The unitary structure of this eWorkBook aims at cultivating multiple skills and developing a model of individual study (self-study), stimulating the process of continuous learning (continuous / life-long learning processses), without which the acquisition of a foreign language and a vocabulary of specialty, is - unfortunately - impossible.
The ESP eWorkBook contains grammar notions, briefly presented in each chapter. They are meant to bring more information and practical notions about the structures of the English language, emphasize the importance of clarity and conciseness of expression in English, the lingua franca of today, revisit notions of phrasal verbs and idiomatic expressions, all accompanied by application exercises .
Acquiring an academic, formal, important vocabulary, from as diverse fields of activity as possible, ensures the quality of expression in the studied foreign language and a solid basis of communication, in general.
We cannot clearly share our thoughts and freely circulate our ideas, in conversation or in writing, if we do not master the language in which we want to express ourselves well enough. Therefore, The ESP eWorkBook proposes, besides the academic vocabulary, formal and ESP terms (studied in the course, found in eGlossary) from different fields of interest, a sum of synonymy exercises, as a source of study and additional knowledge of the lexicon. English, studied as a second language (ESL). We understand, studying the synonymy, the importance of avoiding redundancy in expression and we manage to avoid, in oral and / or written speech, grammatical errors.
The activities proposed for the weekly portfolio topics are complex, aiming at developing specific skills in approaching the written expression of a variety of topics, and the theoretical indications, patterns, discussions and models offered in the course help to clarify them. The instructions offered are concise and add practicality to the students, whom they help to learn by writing. The personal style, proper to each student, is formed, polished and refined in time, if the writing is seen rather as an adventure or as a personal experience, which extends over time, than as a skill that requires a lot of effort and years of study in improvement.
Hoping that the use of this learning tool will stimulate the desire for knowledge through thorough and steady study, I wish everyone success!
