The significance of language knowledge and specialized knowledge in ESP teaching has been recognized by many scholars, particularly in light of the rapid development of globalization and integration. The aim of teaching ESP is to facilitate ESP learners’ communication skills in a range of professional contexts and to utilize that knowledge in their future jobs (Rahman, 2015). Currently, conventional teaching approaches do not appear to well support the provision of specialized knowledge to ESP students. The purpose of this paper is to look into the impacts of CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) on students’ ESP learning during a seven-week intervention. Data was collected from students of a Business class at the ESP Department, University of Foreign Language Studies- The University of Danang (UFLS_UD) through a semi-structured interview. The results reveal that students’ specialized knowledge improved over time during the intervention and that their confidence was promoted despite certain obstacles. It is also suggested that the CLIL method could be employed in ESP teaching to assist students in enhancing their English-interpreting skills.
