  • 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;

"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
