Basic frameworks necessary for designing class projects in an EFL classroom are explored in this paper. Analysis of successful projects found the following common elements: learners worked in a collaborative atmosphere, engaged in theme-related learning activities, collected related content matter from various sources and finally, presented a compilation of collected and analyzed information. Applying these components, the author introduces a class project that was designed for engineering students in a Japanese university.
