matched ESP course, case based and project based learning can be used to
augment the traditional lecturing course. The case based learning enable the
students to analyze some cases of real application of ESP case. The project
based learning enables the students to show the analysis of the ESP theory
application. This article discusses about the use of cases of ESP teaching for
medical doctors, police, and academic writing as the preliminary activities
before doing the project. Those cases were discussed and analyzed in terms of
need analysis, syllabus, course design, language description, and learning
theories used.
