Needs analysis is a useful tool to understand students’ needs and to help the implementation of educational policies (Munby 1978, R. Richterich & J-L. Chancerel 1980, Van Els et. al. 1984).  Hence, this research is intending to probe the following research questions: 1) What are the learning styles of students who covered ENGL 191 and ENGL 192 at Faculty of Communication? 2) What are the needs of those students according to the learning styles?3) How can learning efficiency be improved through designing a curriculum for an ESP context? 4) Based on the designed curriculum how was a sample unit developed? This research intends to give some helpful hints and suggestion to those who are involved with material development.
