HOW TO CREATE A FOREIGN LANGUAGE LEARNING CURRICULUM WITH A PEDAGOGICAL DIMENSION?
 
Despite of the many changes in the English language learning curriculum in Iraq, teaching English to school students is not just challenging but rather unsuccessful in terms of creating pupils with both a good competence and an accurate performance. The learning process is being replaced with a merely passing one grade to another process with the blessing of no serious effort to locate and solve such a problem,which would result in an illiterate generation in an English language oriented cultures. There are many reasons for such a problem,one of which is the tendency of most English language teachers to treat content of the curriculum as a structure based material, also there are other factors like; the repetition of the same grammatical rules through our the different stages of school years and the predictable questions used,even in high school final exam.Therefor I would like to propose a three step plan to overcome these difficulties.The first step is to design a functional based curriculum which presents no syntactical rules in the early years of learning English language but only concentrates on communicative and interacting skills. The second step is to use " pedagogical wheel " as a course given in college in a pre-training program for teachers, the third step of our model is to create a reference in the Ministry of Education to connect with all English teachers and provide updated information, advises,aids and share experience among them.
