ABSTRACT
Advancement in education is a continuous process which brings change and innovation in curriculum, methodology and evaluation or any other area of concern. Change in curriculum takes place at two levels; the content of the course (s) and teacher trainings, so that, the objectives of its modification be properly understood by the subject teachers for its effective and efficient delivery to the students in the classroom. Teaching of English at secondary and higher secondary levels has always been a challenge for curriculum developers, subject experts and teachers, since the quality of teaching and learning in the classroom and students' achievement level in government schools and colleges with regard to knowledge and skills has never been satisfactory. Studies have shown that competency of English language teachers has been a major cause of students' poor performance. Many training programs for English subject teachers are being organized at different levels for the teachers to equip them with necessary latest knowledge and skills to make them good English teachers by the Government of Pakistan and Education Department, Government of Sindh but somehow the results of training do not match with the desired objectives.
