With the development of science and technology, the speed and coverage of information dissemination are more and more extensive, and with the deepening trend of globalization, the exchanges between countries become closer. Whether in depth or in breadth, the exchanges between countries are deepening. In the world, the most common way of communication is English. Whether it is international political exchanges, trade exchanges, or residents' tourism and cultural exchanges, English will basically be used as a common way of communication. It is in this era that ESP came into being. Based on this, this paper introduces the relevant overview of ESP's special-purpose English, and then analyzes the problems existing in the current ESP special-purpose English curriculum setting, and then gives suggestions for the reform of ESP-specific English based on professional needs. It is hoped that the content of the paper can give certain suggestions to the development of relevant courses in China, and improve the adaptability of Chinese students to the social use of ESP in English.
