The study aims at discovering the beginning EFL teacher’s competence in planning lessons in terms of the way he articulates clear learning objectives for the lesson, the way he selects teaching materials related to the objectives to be achieved, and the way he selects assessment related to lesson objectives. This study is a qualitative research with a case study. The study was conducted at SMAN A in Makassar, South Sulawesi, Indonesia. The subject was one beginning EFL teacher who taught English of the first year students in a public senior high school in Makassar. He has an undergraduate certificate (S1 Sarjana degree or equal to B.A.) in English Education and had been teaching one year in SMAN A. The data collections were obtained through the questionnaire, semi structured interview, on-site lesson plan observation, and documentation. Data then was analyzed descriptively. The results of the study reveal that Muhlis (pseudonym), the beginning EFL teacher, stated general learning objective which was difficult to be observed and measured, he organized learning material from the easiest to the most challenging material which he took mostly from the textbook, and he used his feeling when assessing his students. He did not even acknowledge grading system. The result also shows that Muhlis did not make formal written lesson plan. He has mind lesson plan due to his prior experiences and routine teaching of lower grade in first-year senior high school students.
