Abstract

The Book “Specialised English: New Directions in ESP and EAP Research and Practice by Ken Hyland & Lillian L.C. Wong (2019): Routledge” is a must-read book for ESP and EAP researchers and practitioners. It consists of three main sections: 1) conceptualizing issues in specialized language use (five chapters), 2) focusing on texts (six chapters), and 3) focusing on practice (six chapters). This book addresses some challenges in teaching and researching ESP courses across disciplines (Enesi et al., 2021). For example, contextualizing ESP teaching as “workplace English” is currently demanding, thus allowing ESP curriculum developers to formulate and infuse English materials in the workplace (V. K. Bhatia & Bremner, 2012).

Abstract

The study aims to explore students' perspectives on the implementation of collaborative project-based learning (CPBL) in the Engineering Department as a means to enhance their understanding of the subject matter and develop problem-solving abilities. A quasi-experimental design was employed, and data was collected through a semi-structured questionnaire. The results indicate that CPBL has the potential to improve students' speaking and presentation skills in various aspects, including grammar, discourse competence, sociolinguistics, strategic competence, fluency, accuracy, and presentation skills. The study also recommends further investigation into computer-mediated communication within group projects and suggests incorporating controlled and energizing task speaking during comparison evaluations to foster reflective thinking among both teachers and students. In summary, this research highlights the positive impact of CPBL on language and presentation skills within the Engineering Department, emphasizing its potential benefits for student learning.

Abstract

This article presents the findings of a quantitative study investigating the impact of integrating TED Talks media in language instruction on students' speaking skills. The study focused on assessing the effectiveness of utilizing TED Talks videos as a resource to enhance students' verbal expression and communication abilities. The analysis of pre-test and post-test scores revealed a significant improvement in students' speaking skills following the integration of TED Talks. By incorporating authentic and engaging content from TED Talks, students were exposed to a variety of topics, expert speakers, and real-life language use, leading to enhanced fluency, vocabulary, and pronunciation. These results underscore the potential of integrating TED Talks as an effective pedagogical tool for promoting students' speaking skills in language instruction. Language educators are encouraged to incorporate TED Talks into their teaching practices to create dynamic and interactive learning experiences that foster linguistic development and effective communication. The study contributes to the existing body of research on the use of multimedia resources in language education and offers practical insights for educators seeking innovative approaches to enhance students' speaking abilities.

Abstract

This article investigates the implementation of hybrid learning in BusinessCommunication at the vocational education level. The study adopts a virtual casestudy approach utilizing digital narrative inquiry to collect data on teachers'strategies for hybrid learning aimed at enhancing students' businesscommunication performance. Findings reveal that one teacher successfullydeveloped a self-initiated hybrid learning model during explorations in this field.The teacher integrated traditional instruction with diverse online platforms likeMoodle, web-cloud video conferencing, Google Classroom, and social mediaplatforms such as Facebook and WhatsApp to teach English for businesscommunication. In contrast, other teachers demonstrated limited implementationof hybrid learning. Notably, the level of hybrid learning implementation wassignificantly linked to students' business English performance outcomes. Greaterutilization of hybrid learning strategies correlated with improved studentperformance in business communication. The research carries implications forpedagogy, underscoring the significance of employing diverse hybrid learningstrategies in English teaching.

Abstract

This book is not for generic business presentation tips. However, it provides several tried-and-tested presentation elements. It will help the presenter to enlighten, influence, and excite the audience. Each chapter is segmented into “Know” and “How” sections to help you grasp the idea and use it in your business presentation. This book will help you maximize your presentations to a group, relevant stakeholders, or a digital/online presentation. For example, learning to promote yourself professionally, amaze your audience, start, end, and transition your presentation. It also includes ideas on designing a presentation outline, practicing, and presenting. This book presents eight golden steps for delivering business presentations: 1) understanding the target audience’s viewpoints, 2) mastering the topic of the presentation, 3) outlining the presentation (e.g., topics, structure, rules), 4) summarizing the presentation, 5) handling the questions effectively and straightforwardly, 6) concluding the comments and responses effectively, and 7) using both verbal and non-verbal communications effectively during the presentation., and 8) the way forward, beyond this book. A business presentation must be well-prepared and consider ways to impress the audience (Sweeney, 2003). Moreover, a presenter must have an idea to map their mind to organize their talks during the presentation (Buzan & Abbott, 2006).
