Tailoring For the Needs of Graduate Students in Kuwait


Drawing on their long experience of teaching English as a foreign language in Kuwait, the researchers propose a course designed to meets the needs of Kuwaiti students seeking to pursue their higher studies in a university in one of the English speaking countries, particularly the UK or the USA. The need for this course stems from the fact that students who go abroad to pursue their higher studies struggle a lot, not only with the authentic language that they encounter for the first time, but also with the culture. So the content of the course is based on teaching the language within its cultural context. This paper gives details of this course in terms of goals, objectives, content, the stages of the learning experience and ways of implementation.
