Strategies for developing English verbal communication: case study of secondary school students at Gezira state – Sudan (Published)
This research paper investigates the efficiency of applying some strategies to improve English verbal communication in Sudanese secondary schools besides the strategies teachers and learners are using now. To achieve this goal, the researchers assign some English language teachers and third grade secondary school students as a target population. The researchers use different questionnaires and pre and post tests as most appropriate methods for collecting the data. Then, they utilise the descriptive approach to analyse the data. Moreover, they use the SPSS programme to compute it. One of the results is that the abuse and lack of strategies of teaching and learning the target language leads to the deterioration of verbal communication. The most important researchers’ recommendation is that, Sudanese English language teachers in secondary schools should apply all recommended listening strategies and train their students to listen more effectively to native listening materials.
