‘Languages for Specific Purposes in Higher Education 2015’ (LSPHE 2015) was a a free one-day event, on 11th September at the University of Manchester.
The focus of the event looked at LSP from three different angles: from an institutional and managerial stance, from a course designer’s point of view (language coordinators, course leaders) and finally from a teacher’s perspective at a more practical level.
