Despite more efforts from educational institutions to improve the teaching quality for non-English majors, learners’ language proficiency in Vietnam is still problematic. Thus, finding a solution for teaching to upgrade their language proficiency is now an urgent action. Connecting four skills in an EFL classroom is considered an effective approach to enhancing learners’ language achievement. This article provides a comprehensive theoretical basis for implementing an integrated skills approach in a Vietnamese EFL classroom. Specifically, the article first indicates the advantages of implementing the eclectic approach in one single lesson, followed by discussing the characteristics of the target approach, including the types of integration. The article then proposes the feasible procedure of merging skills into classes, namely the order of skills and the transition of skills, involving teaching tasks and activities for teachers to apply in a classroom. In addition, the teacher’s and learners’ roles in a classroom are discussed. Finally, a teaching testing and assessment covering four skills are mentioned.
