  • how to focus a needs analysis according to the course and student level;
  • the selection and sequencing of a wide variety of data collection procedures;
  • analysis and interpretation of needs analysis data in order to write reports and determine Student Learning Outcomes;

About the Author:

James Dean Brown is Professor in the Department of Second Language Studies at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. He has spoken and taught courses in places ranging from Brazil to Yugoslavia, and has published numerous articles and books on language testing, curriculum design, program evaluation, and research methods.

Review:

"In clear, accessible prose, J.D. Brown has provided a much-needed book on how to conduct a learner needs analysis for ESP. It is full of useful examples and practical tips, and will be valuable for teachers and curriculum developers in other languages, as well. Highly recommended."
Mike Long, University of Maryland, USA

"...a much-needed, solid introduction to needs analysis in ESP....J. D. Brown’s book should be required reading for all language teachers interested in or tasked with curriculum development."

Dan Douglas, Iowa State University, USA

"...this book provides an earnest and worthwhile contribution to its professional development value in the teaching of ESP."

Walaipun Puengpipattrakul, Chulalongkorn University Language Institute, Thailand

"The book is jargon-free and accessible to teachers and course designers alike. It is interspersed with examples from the author's own experiences from China, the Middle East and Hawai'i which makes it a refreshingly practical and readable guide for first-time and experiences designers of NAs."

Roy Wilson, Institute of Ismaili Studies, UK
