Key Issues in English for Specific Purposes (ESP) Curriculum Development
Today, together with becoming independent of individuals from their countries and participating in the global mobility, it is seen that the number of lingua franca speakers has been increasing.
The necessity of lingua franca requires these foreign languages to be taught through learning objectives of individuals.

Whereas traditional linguists set out to describe the features of language, revolutionary pioneers in linguistics began to focus on the ways in which language is used in real communication.

Rather than simply focus on the method of language delivery, more attention was given to the ways in which learners acquire language and the differences in the ways language is acquired.
