Abstract-Alternative: This paper describes how the English(Foreign Language)program at St. Luke's College of Nursing has developed into its ongoing from within the context of the present curriculum, which was revised in 1995.Internal and external factors that significantly influenced the concept and development of the program were reviewed.The internal factors included the history and educational principles of the institution as wellas the content of its past foreign language program;external factors included Taikoka in 1991 by the Ministry of Education, Science, Sports and Culture, which focused on the enforcement of restructuring of curriculum in higher level education in Japan.With the legislative directives in mind, and while tracing the past steps, three aspects emerged as goals of our language program designing:developing communicative competence;understanding culture;learning specific(professional)English.These goals constitute the framework for the development of our current language program.A part of the reaction of students ti the new program is presented by the results of a brief survey conducted in November, 1996 with freshman and sophomores on the language syllabus design.Further follow-up evaluation of the program and course content will be required for improvement and refinement.
