Some students perceive English as a tedious subject to grasp as they do not have access to learning materials. Given that many schools are still oriented towards traditional format of classroom teaching, it can be challenging to inspire students to develop an interest in this subject.
A fixed structure can be a hindrance to some students as the emphasis on repetitive answering and rote learning is discouraging to them. Therefore, it is important for educators to gather feedback, innovate and refine their teaching methods as well as using online learning to keep students interested.
Another major obstacle that affects students who are learning a new language is the lack of self-confidence. Due to the fear of being ridiculed by their peers, these students should be given the opportunities to practise gradually and consistently in a virtual education platform so as to improve effectively.
