This study recounts the process undertaken to produce English language teaching materials for chemistry majors at Udon Thani Rajabhat University. Initially, a writing course was requested for third year students for one semester and later the Language Center decided to produce an integrated skills course focussing on listening, speaking, reading and writing for possible future use.


Last semester, the third year chemistry students attended a second course; as a consequence, this presented the Language Center with the possibility of trialling various sections of the new integrated skills course.


This semester the new course participants are participating in the final pilot course which has been extended by a further sixteen hours.
