There is an ever increasing demand from industry that engineers, especially those in the field of computer science, have a better command of English. This paper reports the pilot ESP teaching project in one of the biggest faculties of engineering in Japan. About 150 second-year students were given the weekly assignment of translating what they had learned in class about a programming language into English. The project was carried out by a team of specialists, both in the content area and language teaching, and implemented on CEAS, an e-learning platform which emphasizes the face-to-face lecture. The project proved to be successful as the test results in English and the programming language showed a strong correlation. The student perception of the demanding curriculum was also positive. Through trial and error in the course of one year, the ESP teaching curriculum for the first to third year students was developed.
