    Abstract

    English as a tool for communication in the globalized world has lead to the need to shift the focus of the teaching orientation. The teaching of English should shift from General English (GE) to Specific English (SP). This anticipates the follow-up action of the ASEAN Community in 2015 on the agreement of the movement of five areas: free flow of goods, services, investment,capital and free flow of skilled labors. So, preparing the students to have international careers within ASEAN is one of the responsibilities of the English lecturers. This research aims to assess the needs of English competences in the supervisory to managerial levels. The method is basically qualitative with some data collected quantitatively through observations, interviews, questionnaires, and focused group discussion from hotel supervisors and managers. Data were qualitatively and quantitatively analyzed. The results reveal several English competences in language skills required in hotel workplaces. Also, several language functions in language skills to function in certain roles and responsibilities in managerial and supervisory levels are discovered. Several topics relevant to the roles and responsibilities in hotel context as contents are also identified. Some suggestions for future work are offered.
