Contextualization is the call of 21st-century education. Hence, educators and teachers are called upon to execute lesson plan exemplars deeply rooted in the learners. Using the context of modular distance learning, contextualized lesson plan exemplars were crafted to harness the essential learning competencies in English for Academic and Professional Purposes during the school year 2019-2020 of the first semester. With the contextualization of lesson plan exemplars in EAPP, the current study aimed to identify and address the gap by looking into the solidity and weight of the results using the descriptive-correlational design. The study is grounded in the theory of Automaticity. According to Shiffrin & Schneider (1977), Automaticity is the capacity and competence to perform things that only need minimal instruction and reinforcement through practice. The experimental group in the pretest revealed a mean of 3. 64 with a verbal interpretation of S or Satisfactory. At the same time, the posttest unveiled 8.14 having a verbal interpretation of VS or Very Satisfactory. The findings surmised that contextualization provides teachable competencies that are easier to grasp by giving learners authentic concepts. The competencies enumerated in EAPP for Grade 12 Cookery-Food and Beverages have shown significant interplay with English language learning and contextualization. This means that contextualization, if utilized properly, there would be a great achievement in attaining language proficiency.
