Cronbach alpha level of the test was found to be, 98. Reading, writing, listening, speaking, vocabulary and grammar achievement tests were implemented at the end of the semester. Data were analyzed with the help of SPSS 20 by employing descriptive and inferential statistics. Test of normality and homogeneity were calculated by applying Kolmogorov-Smirnova and Levene Statistic respectively. Results showed experimental group were significantly different in their proficiency test scores although there was no significant difference between control group and experimental group at the beginning of the semester in their pre- test proficiency test scores. Achievement test scores revealed that learners in experimental group did significantly better in listening, reading, writing and vocabulary achievement tests.
