A Proposed ESP Training Program Based on Herringbone and Vlogs for Developing Management Sciences Students’ Reading Comprehension and Speaking Skills
This research aimed at investigating the effect of a proposed ESP training program based on Herringbone Technique (HT) and Educational Vlogs (Ed-Vlogs) on developing Management Sciences students’ reading comprehension and speaking skills. Participants of the research were the first-year students at the Higher Institute of Management Sciences, Beni-Suef Governorate, Egypt, in the first term of the academic year 2022/2023 AD. They were sixty students, and randomly assigned into two groups: experimental (n=30) and control (n=30). Instruments of the research were designed by the researcher as follows: a needs analysis questionnaire, a checklist and a pre-posttest of reading comprehension and speaking skills, and a rubric to score it. It was adopted the pre-posttest experimental / control group design. Results showed that the proposed ESP training program helped the experimental group students develop reading comprehension and speaking skills higher than those of the control group students. Thus, it was recommended to implement HT and Ed-Vlogs in ESP programs for developing reading comprehension and speaking skills.
