Work in the field of Languages for Specific Purposes (LSP) has also been transformed by technology. This volume offers an overview of a variety of applications of IT in the field of LSP. It is addressed to a wide audience that includes LSP teachers and researchers, although the contents may also be relevant to applied linguists working in other fields. This book contains research studies as well as educational experiences and proposals, presented from different perspectives and backgrounds (both geographical and cultural), all of which are theoretically grounded and with a clear and sound rationale. Readers will find a variety of educational projects and research studies situated in specific educational contexts and in particular geographical locations. Although not intended for generalization, we believe they are valuable technology-based educational solutions that can offer new insight and reflections that may help readers create their own tools and carry out further research. The chapters cover the main areas of research and practice in the field.
