Lindita Kaçani, Suela Mangelli

Abstract


The English Language School Program in Albania aims at enabling learners to use the language effectively in both written and oral communication. Since effective communication is greatly dependent on grammatical accuracy, English language teachers have the responsibility to help learners develop grammatical competency apart from communicative competency. The aim of this study is to investigate teachers’ perceptions concerning the difficulties faced by school teachers and learners in teaching and learning EFL grammar for communicative purpose in Albania. Such awareness may help the teacher in choosing the right teaching option that would pose fewer difficulties and problems to their learners and therefore, enhance students’ learning of English grammar. This paper gives the data analysis of a questionnaire given to 58 teachers teaching English at different levels aiming to find out whether teachers’ perceptions regarding grammar teaching and learning varied according to the level they taught English. Mean scores were used to interpret the data.
