Keywords:English teaching and learning, multimedia, self-evaluation, reflections
This paper examined the factor responsible for the poor quality of the teaching of English as a second language in schools. To guide the study three research questions were posed. The questions examined the following three variables: (1) Frequency of the use of instructional media; (2) Frequency of the use of media intructional techniques; and (3) The school learning environment.
It revealed that english language teachers do not frequently use modern instructional technologies and variety of teaching techniques in their English language lessons.
This paper addresses research into learners' perceptions of the usage of multimedia, self- evaluation of one's performance in individual practice and reflections on practical ways of improving students' skills. Some implications of research are suggested including a blended learning, i.e combination of multiple approaches to learning by harmonizing all language skills with classroom audition activities in teaching/learning English for Specific Purposes.
