Discuss the role of needs analysis in informing the development of a teaching syllabus for learners of English as a foreign language (EFL). (approx.. 350 words)
Develop a needs analysis approach and syllabus outline for the specified context and group of learners detailed below.
You work for a university in the UK who provide pre-sessional courses for students wishing to go on and study Economics and Business subjects at that institution at Undergraduate level. The class you are assigned will have two weeks to prepare for their academic studies. They will have five hours of lessons for these two weeks (Monday-Friday), making 50 hours in total and they will be expected to prepare a 250 word referenced essay to hand in on the penultimate day of the course and for which they will receive feedback on the Friday. The students will already have an Upper-Intermediate level of English but will wish to gain key academic skills for writing essays, listening to lectures, giving presentations and reading academic literature. Your job will be to make sure they have the key skills needed to produce the essay and to prepare them successfully for their Undergraduate Economics and Business courses.

I have uploaded two assignment samples from previous students. Please use these assignments as examples of high quality work and use them for indicative purposes ONLY- do not copy them. You need to develop your own approach and yet work within the conventions thinking of the discipline area.
I have also uploaded screenshots of the reading list. Please make sure to use some of the sources.
