The IATEFL ESP SIG is very pleased to present this publication to its readers in the hope that the book bridges a gap in the market while complementing other methodological ESP titles directly or remotely related to the topic.

The main objective of the SIG is to disseminate good practice in ESP (as well as in EAP and EO/PP) through its membership and to promote models of excellence in ESP to ELT professionals internationally through workshops, seminars and conferences and through publishing the output in our Journal and in leading international ELT Journals and periodicals.

Review:

"Another fantastic book edited by Mark Krzanowski." Sandee Thompson, IATEFL Voices, Issue 232, May / June 2013 "Mark (Krzanowski) has done an excellent job of pulling together twelve papers written by teachers in a variety of international contexts into one cohesive volume, while still allowing the voices of the individual contributors to shine through. Canadian teachers can take away from Current Developments in English for Work and the Workplace not only practical teaching ideas but also - and perhaps more importantly - an appreciationof the scope and nature of English for the Workplace, and the diverse challenges faced by those engaged in teaching professionals around the world. This volume will be a useful addition to the bookshelves of anyone whose career involves training non-native speakers for professional careers." Tania Pattison for Share (TESL Canada), Issue 4, 2013 "...a collection of fascinating case studies from around the world of E4W/E4WP (English for work/English for the workplace) practice in EFL and ESL contexts. ...For an ESP curriculum developer, the book provides a welcome window into other people's worlds. Kraznowski states in the foreword, "E4W/E4WP offers ESP teachers an opportunity to engage in designing syllabi...for interesting, unique and unusual courses that pose meaningful but rewarding challenges" (2011, p.2). The opportunity to see how others have coped with those challenges is invaluable. Initially I was sceptical that reading about someone else's experiences in Nigeria would help me with curriculum development in New Zealand, but I find instead that I have uncovered a group of colleagues and mentors who are experiencing the very same issues all over the globe. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone involved in ESP curriculum development." Laura Haseley, for The TESOLANZ Journal, Vol. 21, 2013
