The in-depth analysis of the literature was done and that comprehensive literature review helped in developing a framework and questionnaires utilized in different phases. Employing a mixed methodology, the study is divided into four different phases. Initially, a survey was carried out on a small scale to understand the need for the English language in the country. In the later phases, the English curricula, the perceptions of teachers and students regarding coursebooks, and the English textbooks taught at higher secondary level were critically evaluated. The study pointed out limitations on the whole educational situation and these shortcomings are supposed to be eventually liable for the low standard of English existing in the province. The English curricula were also found to be restrictive in developing linguistic skills. The teachers/principals lacked practical, comprehensive, and critical perceptive of language learning goals, designing the syllabus, teaching methodology, and developing materials. In general, the textbooks emphasized artificial and controlled tasks to study English.
