Annual International Conference "More than ESP" is devoted to the vital issue of adapting ESP teaching methods to today’s student profile. Participants get an opportunity to share best practices and discuss contemporary trends in ESP, as well as Academic Writing, English as a Medium of Instruction, and Digital Learning.
