Abstract: The study was conducted to investigate the present needs of MA students of Tourism Planning and Management who presented their preferences for the target proficiency needs, their present level of proficiency, and their attitude towards the role of English in their careers. The findings of data analysis revealed that homogeneity was the most important obstacle in monitoring the course: neither the level of proficiency nor their attitude was found to enjoy any acceptable degree of homogeneity. It is suggested that giving greater significance to the TEFL section of the entrance exam and setting up proficiency requirements, modifications including choice of self-study reading materials, limited use of L1, and choosing easy to do tasks for the weak majority are suggested.
