Enhancing English Proficiency: Strategies and Constraints in Philippine Education




This study investigates the teaching English as a second language (ESL) in the Philippines, along with comparative insights from other countries. It examines challenges such as resource constraints, large class sizes, and insufficient professional development, while also identifying effective strategies including interactive teaching methods, technology integration, and teacher collaboration. Comparative insights from Arab countries, India, and Indonesia offer additional perspectives on ESL education challenges and strategies. The impact of government initiatives like the K-12 curriculum extension and the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act is also analyzed. While these initiatives aim to improve education outcomes, they have not fully addressed the specific challenges of ESL teaching. The study concludes with recommendations for enhancing ESL education, including tailored professional development for teachers and improved implementation of curriculum reforms. Addressing these challenges is crucial for improving English language proficiency and preparing students for success in a globalized world.
