Abstract

Learning functional grammar for ESP class is aimed to improve students of non-English language department to understand how English works effectively, appropriately, and accurately. Teaching ESP cannot be separated by the use or the implementation of functional grammar as it is clear that teaching English as a foreign language in ESP class is also concerned with the language as an instrument of social interaction rather than as a system which is viewed in isolation. Teaching functional grammar for ESP students, in this matter, students of non-English language department, can result such a hard working effort for teachers in order to help them understand the-so-called functional grammar. As a matter of fact, ESP can combine subject matter of the related field of study and English language teaching. Therefore, learning functional grammar has actually been conducted in ESP class since the students are also involved with the use of their background knowledge of the field of
study.
