Abstract

The study was conducted to investigate why the secondary students in Misurata were unable to communicate in English orally, fluently, in spite of studying it as a general subject during their school education.The traditional teacher-fronted method of teaching, insufficient allocation of time for oral skills training, and teachers themselves, not taking any interest in developing oral skills, are the major reasons for the students’ poor speaking skills. The data for the study, among other things, were mainly based on the classroom observations of the lessons presented by twelve secondary teachers, stretching for over two months, involving five schools. The data analysis was carried out using tables in percentage to obtain accurate results. The findings clearly proved that the points stated in the hypothesis for the poor oral production of speech by the secondary students in Misurata were correct. Based on the conclusions drawn, recommendations which can positively help in developing the oral skills among the students of secondary schools were presented.
