Mohammad Reza Ghamari, Farzad Hosseini


This study investigated the English language learning status in 18 high schools in Tehran, Iran. The aim was to examine the extent to which the students have achieved English proficiency, due to the type of high school (non- profit and ordinary- governmental) in which they studied. Also, an attempt was made to explore whether the student' performance on vocabulary, listening, speaking, reading, and writing would be different in terms of students' attendance in language institutes. Furthermore, in this study, the subjects' attitude toward English and its effect on the skills was taken into account.
