dc.description.abstract The main purpose of this study was to examine the successes and challenges of teaching grade nine English through satellite TV in three government schools in Addis Ababa namely, Wondirad, Kokebe Tsibah and Menelik II Secondary Schools. To achieve the above purpose, descriptive survey method \\'as employed. For this purpose, 285 grade nine students, 28 grade nine English teachers and 6 directors were selected from the three high schools. The three high schools were selected purposefully and the students were selected randomly. All available grade nine English teachers and directors were included in the study. The instruments used to collect data were questionnaire, observation and interview. The obtained data were analyzed by using percentages and mean values. The qualitative data obtained from open- ended questions and interviews were reported' as given by respondents. The study revealed that the satellite TV tried to integrate the four language skills and syllabus (textbook). Moreover, the satellite TV used visual aids familiar to grade nine students. To the contrary, students and classroom teachers didn't participate in the teaching-Ieaming process .Moreover, students of grade nine had negative attitudes towards grade nine English satellite TV. The study further revealed that grade nine English teachers didn't get any service utilization training. Hence, they carried out their roles minimally. The findings also showed that lack of English language from students, lack of enough time given by satellite TV due to large volume of grade nine English textbook, large number of students, lack of discipline from students and lack of curricular materials made the implementation of grade nine English very low. Finally, on the basis of the findings, it was recommended that teachers should get service training on utilization of satellite TV by using seminars, workshops etc. Students should practise communicative language starting from elementary schools. The satellite TV teacher should consider the English language problems of grade nine students. Concerned bodies like EMA, MOE and ICDR should be involved in minimizing as well as in solving the problem areas to bring about effective teaching-learning process en_US
