- Limited Teaching Resources:
Not only the English language, Teaching anything mostly depends on the resources.
Mostly the teachers faced this kind of problem, the resources which are essential for delivering the lectures of the English language to the students for effective learning are not provided to them.
It became very difficult for the teachers to teach without the resources essential for the lectures.
The resources include the speakers, mike, projectors, computer system and other kinds of digital devices.

- Limited Time for Lecture to Teach:
Time is the most important thing in learning the English language. It takes time for the teachers to observe their students and teach them at their level. The time of the class is very less for the teachers to teach the English language.
This one of the most difficult tasks for the teachers to teach in less time.
This is probably not possible for the teachers to complete the topics of their lectures in less time, which is not enough.
- Students Hijack Lessons:

- Using Other Languages in the Classrooms:
Speaking other languages or speaking in the native language is the most noticeable issue faced by English teachers.
For the students, it’s very easy to speak in their native language or other languages which they can speak easily instead of the English language.
It’s very frustrating for the students trying to speak the language and think the words and sentences to speak which they didn’t know.
It’s very easy for them to communicate in their native language or the language they already have experience with.
This is the most common and big problem faced by the English teachers in teaching the English language to the students in which the English language is not their native language.
- Student Depends on a Teacher:
Another noticeable problem faced by the teachers is the students completely depend on the teachers. They didn’t try to learn and speak themselves.
Those students every time look to the teachers for helping them in learning and giving them the correct answers.
They didn’t try to make words and correct sentences in speaking the English language.
By this problem, the students didn’t learn the technical terms and conditions of how using different kinds of tenses and words of the English language in speaking.
- Students Bored and not Interested in Learning English Language:
Students getting bored and not interest in learning the English language is also a problem faced by teachers.
Sometimes the students are not interested in learning and attending the lectures of the English language. Then they try to do other activities.
Sometimes They disturbed the teachers by talking to the others and doing other non-sense activities during the lecture.
- Difficult to Managed the Class:
In the English learning academies, it can be found that mostly the students in the English classes belong to different backgrounds.
Mostly the students in English learning classes belong to the rural areas. Where there is no scope of learning the English language. it’s very difficult for them to learn the English language.
Mostly they are unable to learn the English language. Some of them have the capabilities of learning the English language.
Then it becomes very difficult for the teachers to manage the class and keep all the class going in the same way.
