    Abstract

    most recently mandated curriculum has re-emphasized that becoming a course designer is a requirement for a pedagogically competent teacher. At university level, especially for ESP teachers, this specific requirement has become more challenging as they should be able to incorporate, into their plans, the needs of the students as well as demands coming from the institutions that have been developed in accordance with the Indonesian Qualification Framework (as stated in the university’s curriculum and the program’s learning outcomes) and society (users of the graduates). On the bases of data gained through needs analysis, this researchbased articledemonstrates howthe selection of materials, teaching and learning activities, and evaluation are developed. Using a set of questionnaires to collect data from a total population of 62 third semester students of Office Management Education Study Program, this study identifies the students’ lack of background knowledge related to English correspondence;theirlow interest, motivation and confidence in learning English; their preference in learning particular materials; how they want to learn the materials; and how they want to be assessed to measure their learning achievement.
