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  chapters offer critical insights necessary to help LSP researchers and  educators rethink curricula and develop new initiatives for LSP. They  may also serve as transferable operations that enhance the practice of  LSP as a crucial component of second language education.
