This study explored eleventh grade students'
difficulties in speaking and writing, and their subject
teachers' concern in improving their student' deficiencies
in these skills.
One hundred and sixty five students and sixteen
teachers drawn from four high school in Addis Ababa were
taken as subjects for the study.
Questionnaires were designed for both teachers and
students in order to collect the necessary information on
the subj ect under investigation. Moreover, test papers,
examination papers and exercise books of students were also
An analysis of the information thus collected seems to
indicate that the students' ability in speaking and writing
and the level expected of them in their content subject do
not tally. Though subj ect teachers were aware of their
students' deficiencies, they hardly showed effort to
promoting their language skills.
Based on this finding, it was recommended that subject
teachers need to be made aware of the additional
responsibilities of promoting their students' language
skills and, thus, work in collaboration with language
teachers in this regard.|
