The genre-based approach has been known to characterise pedagogical practices during the implementation of the 2006 school-level curriculum. Despite its prevalent use andover whelming support by school stakeholders, the efficacy of this approach was none the less questionable. This paper aims to revisit the 2006 School level curriculum, its plausibility and compatibility with individual contexts and its bearing on EFL practices. It also discusses theGenre-based approach in terms of its underlying paradigms, and possible variables and contextual factors which might have impinged on its implementation. Some research findings on the adoption of the approach in Southeast Asia context are also presented to provide insights into how the Genre-based approach could be efficiently adopted. This essay concludes with some ideas for the amendment to the 2006 school- level curriculum and how the genre-based approach might still be relevant in the context of teaching writing skills attertiary education.
