A sample of 120 students was randomly selected from the list of students of Physical Education Departments (PED) belonging to public sector Universities. The data was collected through questionnaire and analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively. Mean standard deviation and T-test was used to test the hypotheses. It was found that English proficiency of learners living urban areas was better than learners having rural back ground. The role of teachers was dismal; however learners’ attitude towards English proficiency was positive as they were cognizant to the importance of English and keen to learn English. Parents’ role in urban area was encouraging than the parents in rural areas. Students’ access to quality education and other basic facilities was less in rural area as compared to urban areas.
