Abstract: Teaching specialized English or ESP (English for Specialized Purposes) is a challenging endeavor for a teacher of English especially in the countries where English is neither the native language/ mother tongue/ first language nor the second language used and spoken in that society. This paper aims at showing such challenges and a suggested syllabus that might help the students who major in American Studies get acquainted with concepts, terms and phenomena which “rock the world†. The former part of this study will consider the syllabus, the concepts, terms and issues concerned with the U.S. and world economy. The latter part will deal with the design of some research focused on preparing students of non economic background for a variety of work experiences; the research design envisages the following steps: teaching the course over an academic year through interactive lectures, administration of a questionnaire at the end of the semester after the students’ completion of the course and data analysis.
