Abstract: This study was carried to investigate the problems facing learners with specific learning difficulties in Kiswahili in Ruaraka zone of Nairobi north district. The following objectives guided the study; to establish if the teachers and learners they teach had a negative attitude towards the subject; to find out if in schools, there were adequate teaching learning resources to help carryout instruction in Kiswahili; to assess the methods commonly used in the teaching of Kiswahili. Both qualitative and quantitative methods were used. The quantitative and qualitative techniques were used to collect and analyze data. Findings indicate that almost all the schools had relevant Kiswahili teaching/ learning aids which they were using to carryout instruction of the language. Further findings however highlighted that there was a tendency of Kiswahili teachers to over emphasize the use of few selected teaching/learning aids at the expense of others. Recommendations were also made. Teacher trainers need to carryout intensive research with a purpose of identifying the best ways in which the language can be taught to learners in such a way that they love it and continue learning it. if it means examining some other subjects in Kiswahili, then let it be done, for this will force even those who hate the language love it for the sake of passing it
