In response to the latest curriculum implementation in Indonesia, this research examines the implementation of EFL (English as a Foreign Language) 2013 curriculum through a phenomenological lens. It draws the data from interviews with two experienced English teachers teaching in two pioneer schools that have implemented the 2013 curriculum since 2014 in Jambi city, Sumatera, Indonesia. The findings of this research show that there are two major benefits that students can take from the implementation of the 2013 curriculum. First, it is promoting independent learning. Through the implementation of the 2013 curriculum, students become active constructors for new knowledge in which the learning activities are planned and facilitated by the teachers. Second, the implementation of the 2013 curriculum stimulates students to be creative learners. Students may be able to do their works or projects better than the teachers expect. The findings suggest that EFL teachers need to improve their ability to design classroom activities that allow students to be active and creative learners. The teachers need to be able to create a good atmosphere and think a step ahead from the students to make a good classroom engagement and to trigger studentsÂ’ independent learning and creativity for the lesson facilitated by the teachers.

Key words: Active learners, creative learners, integrated language skills, phenomenological lens
