The article presents a practical overview of the different activities for developing an effective national language program. Both teachers and language learners benefit equally from the updated curriculum. Well-developed curriculum and materials chosen to implement the requirements of this document will help to grow students’ abilities to reach their intentions and aims. In addition, such curriculum can greatly affect the ways teachers interact with their students and also help to develop teachers’ confidence in their pedagogical activity. Necessary strategies for creating successful tests within a language program have been developed, including suggestions for integrating tests into the overall curriculum using checklists to enhance the quality of evaluation through tests and administering them into the world-wide educational system. The introduction of tests into the curriculum of higher educational Institutions will considerably assist to improve foreign languages learning and teaching.
