Ordinary English teachers serve as English for Specific Purposes (ESP), which have their advantages and disadvantages. How to make use of its own advantages to make up for the shortcomings, and successfully become a marine ESP English teacher, it is worth exploring. ESP is applied to college English teaching and puts higher demands on teachers' ability. We should uphold the principle of capacity-based promotion, expand the horizons of teachers, and enhance teachers' teaching ability and professionalism. The importance of ESP lies in its goal of teaching people how to use English as a tool or means to learn new knowledge. Although general English and ESP English have different learning emphases, some of them are interrelated. This paper introduces ESP as a teaching concept, and specifically analyses how to use ESP to guide the practice of maritime English teaching.
