On the other hand, there has been a long tradition of ESP courses aiming at preparing students for effective academic and professional communication. In relation to ESP/EMI interplay, an apparent need that emerges in university ESP courses is to prepare students to participate in EMI classes. With this need in mind, this study looks at the impact of ESP courses on unive...
