This study aims to design a Public Administration English syllabus based on task-based language teaching and examine the effects on students’ Public administration English performance abilities and learning attitudes after implementing the syllabus for a 15-week semester in an ESP Public Administration English course. The syllabus consists of eleven communicative tasks related to public administration job performance. Eleven tasks were developed in domains of 4 themes (theme 1: office conversation, theme 2: overseas business travel, theme 3: business correspondence and forms, theme 4: presentation) reflecting 22 Public Administration major students’ needs for Public Administration English learning. The eleven tasks were also sequenced depending on difficulty level factoring in task types (information gap, opinion exchange, decision making, problem solving), task contents (general, job specific), task cognitive skills (fact, inference, evaluation), task familiarity (task repetition). Data were collected through task performance assessments on 6 points (6: super, 5: advanced, 4: medium upper, 3: medium low, 2: low upper, 1: low) in terms of 3 evaluation criteria (task completion, fluency, accuracy) to measure students’ task performance abilities, and also through class evaluation survey of 10 questionnaire items in 3 domains (learning effects, tasks, learning attitudes) to investigate students’ perceptions. Data analysis results and findings suggest several educational implications for task-based ESP classes to contribute to the development of students’ English capabilities as well as job related performance abilities.
