Verbally gifted and talented learners are students who demonstrate precocity in linguistic development, rich imagination and creativity, acute sensitivity to life and a positive attitude toward challenge. To help verbally talented students fully develop their potentials and thrive in the fields where they outshine their normal counterparts, educators need to design differentiated curriculums which are different from the normal curriculums appealed to the general students. Based on educational theories and consideration of the specific social and cultural milieu of Taiwan, this article, by providing a thorough review of literature about gifted education, traits of verbally talented learners and clarification of the notions of gift and talent, delineates principles for designing differentiated English curriculums for verbally talented students at highschool level. Meanwhile, ten educational goals, five core abilities of students, and five course elements are enumerated to serve as guidelines for teachers in designing an appropriate a differentiated English curriculum for their students. Various activities are also suggested for teachers to apply in their class to help consolidate and make versatile the English class so as to enhance efficacy of the differentiated curriculum and reach the goals of gifted education.
