To date, numerous books and research articles have focused on the notion of syllabus design
and curriculum development. Nevertheless, very few works have had an inclusive and concise
look upon the issue. This paper is an account of current trends on syllabus design and
curriculum development in Second Language Acquisition in the recent past decades. This is
hopefully intended to offer a descriptive and critical interpretation of the existing syllabuses in
the domain of language learning and teaching. After a brief introductory remark on
curriculum and syllabus types, 13 of the most prominent syllabuses in SLA will be elaborated
on separately. In pursuit of doing so, definition, rationale, merits, and drawbacks attributed to
each syllabus will be touched upon. Although the emergence of some of these syllabi
coincides with each other, while presenting them, it has been tried to follow a roughly
chronological order of their emergence.
