Language curricula come in a wide range of scales to meet various stakeholders’ needs. The development and changes, vitality and enervation, and constraints and promises of a language curriculum reflect the needs of the society that gives birth to it. When it comes to developing a language curriculum, what could teachers do? The first half of the talk outlines the present trends in language curriculum development and the hard choices that teachers may face when tackling the task. The second half emphasizes the role of teachers in the process of curriculum development and suggests that teachers take their place as agents of change because they, inadvertently or not, steer the course of life of a language curriculum.
