This volume draws together contributions from well-established and up-and-coming scholars and teachers researching LSP teaching at primary, secondary, and university level. The individual chapters address this theme from various methodological perspectives, ranging from genre-based approaches and corpus-assisted proposals to ELF and CLIL. Through descriptions of experiences, illustrations of problems, and outlines of possible solutions that offer a fresh critical examination of the field, backed up with recent empirical evidence, the contributors add to the ongoing debate on how best to realise learner centredness in the various didactic scenarios covered in the book. The picture of LSP teaching that emerges from this volume as a whole is a complex, evolving, and fluid one. It is a picture marked by the tension between consolidated practices, constructive criticism and fresh perspectives, and the need to strike the right balance between them to further enhance LSP instruction at all levels of education. As a whole, these chapters convey the state of play in LSP instruction and the key current issues and challenges within this dynamic sphere, be it to meet the shorter term needs of teaching or to channel the longer term efforts of research.
