This paper discusses the fundamental principles involved in case-based teaching method applied in an ESP course; the implementation of meta-level intervention (metadiscourse) for developing technical writing skills and fostering learner autonomy among students at the university level. Most students were reluctant and were not interested in taking supplementary but compulsory English language courses. However, through the implementation of meta-level approach in case-based teaching, improvement has been observed to be evident in the student’s performance and motivation in learning. Detailed findings and implications shall be elaborated further throughout the remainder of this paper.
