Abstract
If a lecturer applies a less precise and boring method, the teaching and learning process will not go well. Thus, it is necessary to improve the teaching of English for students by developing more appropriate learning model focusing on learners' needs. It is in line with the application of the English for Specific Purposes (ESP) approach in which learners and their needs The main purpose of learning with this approach is to help learners to master English according to their respective knowledge and needs. The method used in this study is research and development methods or better known as Research and Development (R & D). Based on the results of preliminary observations in ESP Geography learning, it has not yet reached conformity. The percentage of student responses reached 57.4% with an inappropriate category because the learning process is still general. The learning model resulted from the development has been improved and adapted to the learning environment and emphasizes the Reading Guide learning model. Thus, the results of the second stage, most students (85%) give a positive response to the learning process of reading. For this reason, it can be concluded that the description of the ESP Geography learning model results is good enough even if with improvements.
