Abstract
This study aims to design the program and instruction of an English course that stimulates adult learners' engagement in language learning and English communicative competence development in the continuing education. The authors have discussed the principles and approaches of adult education to the course design (personalized approach, meaningful learning, principles of visual education, technology-based communication) and efficacy of four classroom management strategies: a visual thinking strategy, video-based discussions, guided discovery activities, web-technologies-based communication tasks. The findings in this study prove the improvement of English communicative competence in adult learners.
