Abstract: This chapter, against a backdrop of several years of critical practices in medical English education, presents a language discovery approach (Ghahremani-Ghajar, Mirhosseini, & Fattahi, 2007). It explores possibilities beyond mainstream conceptions of teaching ESP by suggesting how students may become involved in searching, interacting, discovering, and, owning language in real contexts.
