Knowledge of English language needs is crucial for both students and providers of language education. The identification of needs can help with determining useful course goals, and foster motivation to develop the skills necessary to achieve those goals. This paper examines the needs of first- and second-year university students taking a General English (GE) communication course at the Bunkyo English Communication Center (BECC). Results showed that most participants knew their current and future language needs, agreed with their course goals, and felt that their English language needs were being met by the education provided. Additionally, students indicated their preference amongst macro and micro language skills to be spoken interaction and vocabulary respectively. This research has provided useful information for BECC management regarding its GE course, and it is hoped to have encouraged students to reflect on their English language needs.
