Through this article, I have attempted to study the designing of a second language (L2) curriculum. The aim is not to suggest a new theory of L2 curriculum, but to describe in simple non-technical language the existing theory and its essential components. I will also explore how the various components of the theory have been used to design an L2 syllabus. The overall aim is to describe the theory and its practice over the years for the benefit of non-specialist teachers assigned the role of teaching L2.

Note: Published twice a year in January and July, Language and Language Teaching (LLT) reaches out to language teachers, researchers and teacher educators on issues and practices relevant to language teaching. The primary focus of the publication is language pedagogy in elementary schools. LLT proposes to establish a dialogue between theory and practice so that practice contributes to theory as much as theory informs practice. The purpose is to make new ideas and insights from research on language and its pedagogy accessible to practitioners while at the same time inform theorists about the constraints of implementation of new ideas.
