There are various factors which affects the learning of English at elementary level. Incompetent parent’s assistance leads to a poor performance in English. The teacher and parents themselves should be competent enough to teach and assist properly to their children. Classroom size should also be small so the teachers can teach well. English language teachers should be oriented about the role they are expected to play. For efficient teaching, lot of motivation and encouragement should be given to the students.
