Abstract

This article describes an attempt to reform a curriculum of an
English intensive language program in the Sultanate of Oman. The
reform consisted of several stages, starting from the identification
of needs until choosing teaching materials. Based on the data
obtained from the various sources of the study (i.e. survey,
observations, interviews, and workshops), a number of changes
were introduced to the curriculum. This project revealed important
issues to be addressed in order to make the program design and
evaluation more effective in upgrading students’ English language
proficiency and academic competence so that they are better
prepared for college study.
