- Scaffolding Instruction; Constructivism; Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD); English for Special Purpose (ESP).
English for special purpose (ESP) is a practical English course which is related to the subject after finishing Basic English courses in the University. At present, there have been no specific national requirements for ESP and there is no consensus on what teaching mode should be used for ESP, either. The scaffolding instruction based on the theory of constructivism and Vygotsky’s theory of the zone of proximal development (ZPD) takes the students as the center and gradually helps the students to construct their own framework of knowledge. The application of scaffolding instruction into ESP Course is undoubtedly constructive.
