Abstract

Existing literature on the readiness of college graduate to work suggests that English oral and written skills are among the top required skills in the recruitment process. Additionally, graduates need to possess applied skills such as critical thinking skill, oral communication, and team work/collaboration skill. Therefore, the teaching of ESP should equip not only English skills and subject matter, but it also needs to use methods of delivery that are useful in training students to be fluent in English, knowledgeable in subject matter, and prepared for workforce. Collaborative learning, when implemented effectively, can be one of the means to achieve the goal of preparing students for workforce because it encourages students to use English actively in group activities as well as enhances their critical thinking and collaborative skills.
