Swot Analysis and Setting up a Virtual Professional Environment in Esp Teaching

Abstract

This research is devoted to incorporating the Internet into pre-career ESP learning environment. Unlike GE career-oriented ESP learning is not a mere goal of language study, but a tool of learning profession. This spells instructional consequences, the teacher needs content-focused competent resources, the student requires a well structured career-related guidance. The main obstacle in pre-career ESP training is learners’ completely inexperienced background, lack of knowledge of their future professional sphere, responsibilities and skills needed, and, as a result, lack of motivation. One of the ways out may be early immersion in virtual professional environment. There can be no better tool for this than the Internet.
