In achieving the goals of )uality education for all 86#9 there is a great need to develop
a broadened vision of educational goals, to facilitate holistic approaches to reorgani,ing
educational contents, and to build national capacity in developing key competencies

societies of the :;st century.
central argument is that if education is to succeed in its tasks, curriculum as its core
should be restructured or repacked around the four pillars of learning7 learning to know,
learning to do, learning to live together, and learning to be.

Characteristics
>?y the end of their secondary education, students must have consolidated the basic
competencies of the 6nglish language and the necessary knowledge of the language to
use the receptive skills, oral production skills, and at a beginner level, written
production, through their participation in social practices in different communication
contexts. It is in this stage that the use of linguistic and metalinguistic strategies are of
particular importance for they allow the student to act in a more autonomous and
competent way.
