Abstract: ABSTRACT 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 examined. 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.
