Abstract :

This study investigates English language perception and needs for English for Specific Purpose of 11th grade students at 116 State High School Ragunan, since the students are teenage professional athletes. The difference English need with the average high school students’ need make this study significant. The school is also applying the latest Indonesian curriculum, Kurikulum 2013 which can be combined with the specific purpose of the students. The method used in this study is descriptive quantitative, using closed-questionnaire and interview. The result shows that the students’ perception of English is still low in four aspects (listening, reading, writing, and speaking), but the lowest is speaking skill. It is important for the teachers to provide students with the skill they need the most and meet the change of curriculum in Indonesia.
