Abstract: ESP practitioners are not specialists in the teaching field, but they teach English for professions. The success of ESP courses therefore depends on teacher development. The focus of teacher development should be the creation of knowledge about English language learners’ needs in a specific discipline or for a profession, about materials and methods for use in ESP classes, and about appropriate evaluation procedures and techniques for certification that could serve as a useful key to the prospective employers. Consequently, it calls for personal continued commitment on the part of ESP practitioners. Given the speed of knowledge explosion in the core and allied fields and time constraint, they cannot professionally serve two masters: language and literature.
