ESP (English for Specific Purposes) is an English course based on the specific purpose and specific needs of the learner, such as Business English, News English, Medical English, Legal English, Travel English, Financial English, Accounting English and Real Estate English. In recent years, with the continuous deepening and expansion of the research on ESP, many scholars have begun to pay attention to the “common-core” characteristic of ESP, that is, there are common language features and language skills in ESP in different disciplines and professional behaviors. ESP in different disciplines share common elements in style, rhetoric, genre and communicative skills. Based on the common-core notion and real teaching practice of ESP, this paper attempts to analyze the orientation of ESP and explore the teaching content, teaching methods of ESP by taking the lexical teaching as an example.
