This article deals with the design of the English course materials for the maids working for the expatriate families in Surabaya and focuses on the steps of the design process, starting from needs analysis using ADDIE approach, the problems in the implementation and the solutions. The first step in this approach is the analysis of the needy of the maids, followed by the next steps, that is, design and develop the course and implement it and finally evaluate the whole process. From the implementation, two main problems are identified The first problem is the tendency to read the model of dialog as they read Indonesian language due to their educational background In addition to the pronunciation problem, the second one is their tendency In avoid the formal grammar , especially the word order and sentence patterns .Based on the identifications of the problems. two alternative solutions are recommended: to provide the simple phonetic symbol to help them read/pronounce the words and to simplify the sentence patterns by deleting the auxiliary verbs in some contexts as long as it does not effect the meaning
