- College English is a compulsory course at Yunnan Agricultural University, China. The school-based curriculum development of this course meets the general outcomes and specific skills training requirement. The author critically reflects on its present curriculum design considering the student profile and other stakeholders, clarifying the emerging flaws, focusing on the oral English aspect. A comparison with Wheeler’s (1967) model helps clarify the unaligned weaknesses in curriculum alignment within the present model. With emphasis on constructive alignment, a new-designed College Oral English curriculum is shaped through the analysis of Print’s (1993) model. The 3 phases of Print’s (1993) curriculum development process account for the design and implementation of the new curriculum.
