Therefore, they have the vocational English with general English textbooks and English teaching method now. Vocational high school students, however, have low level language competences and low motivation from English. A research survey shows that they do not know why are they learning English. English experts, thus, should make National Competency Standards based vocational English textbooks with basic learners.

           The background of vocational English course was developed from National Competency Standards. National Competency Standards is only the vocational education system for Korean human resource departments of the company. The government made the standards of work competence to all kind of job from the need of human resource departments.
