Keywords:ELT in large classes, Learners’ perspectives, Challenges learning English, Structural inequality
There is a body of work that reports the challenges of ELT in large classes from teacher’s perspectives. However there are limited studies that have discovered learner’s understanding of ELT in large classes to address this, the present study aims to explore Pakistani learner’s insight into such classes. The research study has employed a qualitative research methodology by using purposive sampling technique eight participants were selected from two universities located in Quetta Balochistan. The data was obtained through semi structured interview protocols. The finding indicates that large class sizes poses challenges for both teachers and students. Hence hampering learners’ language proficiency development given that, this study contributes by proposing both policy and pedagogical implications. Specifically, structural inequality in terms of providing resources to the general masses should be addressed. Moreover, given the constraint, teachers should be trained to handle the large classes and may be trained to employ such teaching approach and techniques which suits their context.
