The purpose of this study is to tap the problems in the mixed ability classrooms, and comment on what the reactions of English teachers towards them should be. Having students who exhibit a wide range of English language ability in the same class often leads to serious pedagogical problems mostly because they are not well-motivated. Besides this, such kinds of students sometimes cause discipline problems, which not only spoils the teaching atmosphere, but also sometimes prevents teaching and learning activities in the curriculum. As for solutions we, teachers, generally act in different ways; some take it easy, while some take it very seriously. Actually, experienced teachers mostly deal with the above mentioned problem intuitively; however, the topic is crucial enough to examine academically. All in all, this paper will suggest and remind us of some practical and significant solutions to the problems regarding mixed ability classes.
