Key Factors in Teaching English for Academic/Scientific Purposes to Non-linguists

Teaching English for Academic/Scientific Purposes to non-linguists, i.e. engineering students, considers developing different skills and competences. Linguistic skills involve speaking, listening reading, and writing. Besides these ones, a special attention is paid to sociocultural and intercultural communication, translation competence and other communication skills. For the purpose, different sources and techniques could be applied. The Global, International, Local Translation approach is applied when it is possible, as well as intercultural communication stemming from it. Students conduct their research in different engineering or scientific discourses, which requires not only special professional knowledge and vocational experience but also abilities to read scientific papers, contribute their articles to the scientific journals or deliver research results at international conferences on the global stage. Serious reforms occurring in higher education institutions create new demands and solutions to the process of foreign language acquisition. These global challenges outline the main directions to be elaborated with students. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2020.
