Abstract :

Identifying the difficulties of English Language Teaching at English Medium Schools’ Primary levels are essential in Bangladesh to achieve to set English language competencies in the educational institutions. The main purpose of this study was to discover the specific problems of English Language Teaching at English Medium Schools’ Primary levels. The current study was a qualitative research technique by nature. One set of closed-ended questionnaires were used to collect data from the teachers who live within three cities to understand the views and situation of the difficulties of English Language teaching. The study indicates that teachers, students and school administration encounter several problems due to lack of skilled teachers, proper teacher training, using proper teaching methods and materials, physical facilities and so on. As a result, English curriculum implementation at the primary level in Bangladesh is becoming unsuccessful in most of the schools; however there are several adequately designed buildings with well trained teachers along with proper educational materials. Given that the number of schools is in the thousands, we shall draw comparisons between respective educational institutions.
