This unit reviews the design of a suitable syllabus that takes into account students' current age and proficiency (assessed by a Level Test) and reasons/requirements for learning English (assessed by a Needs Analysis). A sample syllabus is presented that shows both content and also time allocation. Methods of assessment and course evaluation, and also the range of external examination options were also discussed. For me, this unit and also the referenced paper by Adam Simpson gave a good insight into the benefits of why a situational syllabus is suitable for Young Learners, and particularly those designated as group 1.
