Abstract: The purpose of this study was to assess English language needs of applied chemistry students at Ambo University College, using the research tools of questionnaires and interview. The questionnaires were designed and distributed to applied chemistry students, major course instructors, applied chemistry graduates and employers while the semi- structured interview was conducted to English language instructors at Ambo University College. The data gathered using these instruments were compared and contrasted The finding from the analyzed data revealed that, both the students in applied chemistry programme and graduates at professional settings need the English course as ESP in chemistry. To this end, it has been suggested that the English language course otiered ~i)applied chemistry progrsmme'should enable chemists practice the four English language macro-skills with a wide range of activities of sub-skills. Furthermore, the contents, issues or terms, which are selected as subjects or topics to practice the language skills, should be chemistry and chemistry-related ones. Based on the finding of the study, it has been recommended that syllabus designers need to design appropriate English syllabus and language learning materials for applied chemistry students taking in to account the students' needs of English for academic and future pn' Iessionsl use. Besides, instructors of English course for applied chemistry students should take t.se results of the study in to account in their respectivejobs.
