Abstract: English performance in Secondary Schools is usually affected by the method used in teaching. The teaching method used in English by different teachers (X, Y and Z) were observed and questionnaire used to evaluate students understanding and how they liked a certain method. The project covered observation of the methods used by different teachers, questioning students in how they preferred these methods and how the method affected students' performance which is covered in this paper. Necessary background information have been provided hence it is possible for the reader, whether at home, on course or working, to produce basic but powerful methods of teaching English which can be tailored to meet a variety of need in teaching of English. The inspiration to this work derives from my desire to learn more about the effects of methodologies used in teaching English and how they can produce positive performance in the subject; to develop skills in handling content and to use appropriate methods to teach each of the language skill. Several texts were available, many (but by no means all) dealing with teaching methodologies. Each made some contributions but, even collectively, none seemed to satisfy all requirements of the researcher. However, all the main points in each area are covered in detail at the level required and where additional material is called for, it will invariably be easy to access since it is quoted. I hope the reader will find this report not only comprehensive work but also one that is interesting, practicable, and easy to understand. Comments and suggestions will be received with interest.
