Language course design is a dy- namic and negotiated process between the course manager and the learner. After the negotiation, the objective of the course based on the learners’ needs can be formulated, the suitable approach is adopted, the course materials, the methods and media, and the course tuition are determined.

The course designer, the tutor, and administrator sould do their best in serving the learners. To make the bettrment of the language course conducted the course de- signer should conduct learner assessment and course evaluation.


Key words:   course management, course design, course promotion, course imple- mentation, and course evaluation.
