Abstract—The use of Project-Based Learning (PjBL), as a
teaching strategy, is on the rise across the country because it is
considered as a means to make learning more interesting for
students and to emphasize the acquisition of skills essential for
success in the modern workplace. In order to cater to the needs
of its students, English for Specific Purposes (ESP) necessitates
interdisciplinary expertise due to its unique qualities. As a
result, the position of the educator shifts significantly from that
of the typical language instructions to the subject matter being
taught. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether or
not using PjBL in ESP class improves students’ overall learning
outcomes. In this particular investigation, a single group
pre-test and post-test experimental design was utilized, and the
participants included 40 samples that were selected on purpose.
When it came to the students’ video projects, the use of PjBL
led to a significant improvement in the learning outcomes that
were achieved. The findings indicated high mean scores on the
learning outcomes subscales that were investigated, in addition
to positive correlations on the academic performance of the
participants. These results may add to the growing body of
literature on the topic of how best to teach and learn ESP across
disciplines by integrating different approaches and methods.
