This research found: (1) EMH in which embedded with CLLA was appropriately to use for hawkers by considering that the test result showed the hawkers’ English competence significantlyimprovement(7.20 > 5.00 with alpha = 0.05) and (2) CLLA is appropriately developed as an approach to use in ELT materials development.
