#ITMOesp

ITMO University invites you to participate in the International Online Conference “More than ESP”. The Conference is devoted to the vital issue of adapting English for Specific Purposes teaching methods to today’s student profile. “More than ESP” traditionally gathers participants from multifaceted spheres, both academic and business.

EL professionals employed in private language schools will also find participation useful and rewarding.
