Hence, I have designed a Didactic Program (i.e. a set of ordered and didactic sequenced units that have been planned and developed in each educational course) for the first cycle of Secondary Education, 1º E.S.O. The program tries to rationalize the teaching practice so that teaching is not carried out in arbitrary way but rather as a plan. The teaching program is justified by the systematization, arrangement and specification of the processes stated in the educational project and the curricular program, with enough flexibility to allow space for creativity. From now on, I am using the term Syllabus instead of Didactic Program. This syllabus is sustained on the Educational Organic Law (L.O.E.) and from it, on the Curriculum of Castilla y León “Decreto 52/2007 de 17 de Mayo, por el que se establece el Currículo de la Educación Secundaria en la Comunidad de Castilla y León de Inglés como Lengua Extranjera”. This sets its bases on the common agreement of the Common European Educational Policy. It is also based on an eclectic methodology although it is mainly based on methodological approaches like the cognitive approach. There are differences between syllabus and curriculum that sometimes are not taken into account: Curriculum, Nunan (1980), is concerned with the planning, the implementation, the evaluation, the management and the administration of education, while syllabus is concerned with the selection and grading of content.
