This chapter reports on how two university courses (EAP and ESP) adapted to online and hybrid learning through a combination of technology-mediated and blended learning strategies. This is followed by an examination on issues associated with online instruction from data collected through focus group interviews (N=14) involving teachers and students and a discussion on how students and faculty members feel about the prolonged use of technology in EAP and ESP courses. It is hoped that this chapter will enrich our understanding of delivering EAP and ESP courses in EMI contexts during these challenging times and learn about the struggles students and teachers went through.
