Qualitative research methodology was used for this study. Data was collected through personal visits in terms of classroom observations, semi structured interviews and classroom recording. A convenient sampling was used for this study. Data were analyzed in terms of syllabus design, teachers’ performance and selection criteria, teaching methodology, text books and testing. At the end a number of suggestions have been given for the improvement of the program in light of findings of the study.
