The purpose of this study was to investigate the needs analysis of English learning from the viewpoints of students and the real needs of employers regarding English usage at the workplace. A questionnaire was administered to 60 participants comprising 30 senior students and 30 employers. After quantitative analysis, the results demonstrated that students and employers had different perspectives of English learning needs, especially regarding listening and speaking skills. In addition, the skills learned in school do not totally match the skills required by employers in the workplace.
