The researcher found that English teachers lack certain competencies which they actually need in order to be successful in their work. Out of the six areas looked at, the knowledge of the nature of English took precedence over the others with a mean of 1.43, while English as a second language testing is the most needed competency with a mean of 0,85. The study has come up with proposals that can be used to improve the competence of teachers in teaching of English language in Kenyan primary schools. Education policy makers can also use the proposals to develop English language curriculum that is more responsive to learners needs.
