Abstract

In Pakistan, English still, enjoys the status of a foreign language. It has great importance in the Pakistani setting because of the political, social and official policies in both the private and public institutes. It is because most of the institutions in the urban areas are using English as their medium of instruction and promoting English as a foreign language. Different teaching methods used to teach the English language play a distinctive role in the promotion of the said language. Khurshid and Ansari (2012) postulated that students, who are taught the language with modern methodologies, secure higher marks than those who are taught with outdated methods. This study analyzed the foreign language teaching methods used in private schools of Lahore. The current study chose three private schools and collected data from 300 students; the researcher collected data from the teachers as well. 30 teachers were selected for a survey based on a questionnaire having 15 items, and 9 teachers were selected for in-depth interviews. The findings of this study revealed that the students and teachers mostly like the Direct Method, and most of the students showed a positive interest in learning the English language. However, there were a few students who felt that they could learn in a better way if their teachers used translation to teach them English. Furthermore, there are a few teachers who stated that they used other methods in the classroom like an eclectic method, total physical response method, and the communicative method
