Abstract: The purpose of this study is to find out whether or not language teaching in Ethiopian Senior Secondary Schools using role play can be helpful in developing the communicative ability of students when speaking English by providing them with opportunities to use the language effectively. To achieve this aim, one government high school was selected in A.A. An experiment was carried out using the teaching materials specially prepared for role play activities for seven weeks. In order to gather data, questionnaires were distributed to 140 students, interviews were administered to 20 students, and observation with video recording was made during the actual classroom activity. In addition, oral tests were given to evaluate students fluency at the start, mid and end of the role play activity. The questionnaires were aimed at investigating the attitudes of students' towards the use of role play in language learning and finding out the extent to which the materials were seen to be helpful in developing students' Communicative ability. The interviews and the classroom observation supplemented the data obtained through the questionnaires. The findings have been grouped under four main headings.
