In this globalized world, English plays an important role as the international language. However, many workers in transportation industry, especially the drivers, who are non-native English speakers, struggle to communicate in English. Therefore, an English module is needed to fulfill the drivers’ practical needs.

This research is intended to create a Basic English module for the drivers. This research shows how “Basic English for Driver” module is designed and what the designs of “Basic English for Driver” materials look like. Therefore, the drivers can get help in learning Basic English.
