    Default ESP

    Hello,

    I want to know what do you about ESP (English for Specific Purposes). In another words do you find it interesting for studying? and for what reasons?

    Personally, I don't find English as a subject interesting per se. I don't much care for "grammar Nazis" and find some rules of it far too nit-picky. It's one thing to communicate effectively, it's another to have a 3 page discussion as to whether or not a comma not included in a quotation from a book goes inside or outside the quotation marks.

    That said, I do enjoy writing sometimes, as well as reading or studying others' literature. At the moment I am studying English grammar, etc so I can pass an exam.
