- This paper explores who needs what aspects of L2 English to what levels of proficiency, focusing on college English
curriculum development in Korea. A survey was conducted of 532 college students in Seoul. Grounded that career is
one of the most important motives for EFL learning, the participants were divided into seven groups based on their
desired careers. The results show that the types of desired careers of the participants are highly correlative with the
strength and weakness of their need for learning English, the kinds of English skills they want to learn, and the levels
of English proficiency they hope to achieve.
