Abstract: Language is a superb invention for the simple reason that it allows us to communicate with each other and thereby our world. But language teaching and acquisition is by no means simple. Being in a position which enables me to teach students about the preciousness of learning a new language, I have come to question how to go about this effectively in teaching English. Using a number of methods has allowed me to understand that content-based instruction is the most efficient, not only for language but also content mastery. In this paper, I will first explain the theory of content-based instruction, 2) assess its merits and drawbacks, and 3) offer suggestions for content-based materials development.
