    • Abstract:
      English is accepted as a universal language across the world. Its popularity is increasing drastically almost in all sectors. People speak this language, to unify themselves in this diverse world. Overall, the aim of teaching English, as a second language is to encourage the learners to sharpen the skills of communication, for both academic and professional purposes and to make communication easy for them. Subsequently the learners must have the command over language. But do the students learn English appropriately at elementary and secondary stage? Generally, students lack appropriate reading strategies in English at secondary stage. As secondary school education is a crucial stage of transition of career for students, the investigators tried to explore the reading problems of secondary school students and the status of students at different developmental stage of reading English language. Concurrent Triangulation Design was used for the present study. In this study a sample size of 210 class IXth students, 6 teachers and 6 headmasters of schools was taken for the study. It is concluded that IX class students are still at beginner stage of reading developmental stage. After reading English for 5 years till class IX they are not able to reach reading stage of class IX. Most of the students have reading capabilities of class Vth and VIth class students. This problem needs to be addressed immediately by English teachers of IXth class.
