Abstract

As the crucial foundation of teaching learning process, curriculum should be well-designed by the curriculum developers. English curriculum in this language center has been developed years by years to find out an appropriate framework in order to provision students with certain abilities on English and the government pedagogical requirements. This study aims to seek the answers from purposive participants toward the three research questions; does the implemented curriculum meet the students’ needs?, how are the curriculum of English certification programs designed?, what challenges do the curriculum developers face with in designing the curriculum?. A focus group discussion was used as the research approach to get in depth-data from participants. It was conducted for 12 hours. The research results illustrate that the designed-curriculum has met the students’ need, internal institution policy and the development of other International tests. Likewise, the curriculum was designed by conducting need analysis, though the team encountered many challenges in designing it, for instance assessment and scoring.
