Summary "This volume presents a series of the most up-to-date studies on Chinese for Specific Purposes (CSP), an area that has been underrepresented in Language for Specific Purposes (LSP). Drawing from the insights and trends in mainstream theoretical and methodological LSP research, chapters in this volume explore novelties that CSP has developed to prepare Chinese for professional learners for the global economy. These encompass: needs analysis of less-surveyed high school business Chinese or CSP academic writing classes; developments on internationally oriented engineering and internship programs in China; innovations in Chinese for business or legal materials development and review on textbook pragmatics; studies on language arts and Chinese language use in specific or business settings; technology-driven, project-based learning - or discipline-specific curriculum design. Robustly supported by studies and analysis on the global scale, this volume comprises contributions by professionals from universities across Asia and the United States, each with decades of expertise in LSP. These articles offer critical insights necessary to help LSP researchers and educators rethink curricula and develop new initiatives for LSP. They may also serve as transferrable operations that enhance the practice of LSP as a crucial component of second language education"-- Provided by publisher
