Today, English for specific purposes (ESP) in its various aspects is taught all over the world. In Russia, ESP is a requirement of tertiary education. Educators must develop students' language proficiency relative to professional communication, with respect to the new Federal State Educational Standard. The academic staff of the Linguistics Department at Bauman Moscow State Technical University (BMSTU) skillfully combines traditional teaching approaches and modern techniques. This chapter discusses modern trends in teaching ESP at Russian technical universities and looks into current approaches in this field. The chapter may contribute to a better understanding of primary challenges in ESP, which must be considered when implementing the Federal State Educational Standard.
