Mohammed Ilyas


Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) gained its popularity as a self-motivation  and personal development tool in industry to enhance employee productivity and develop a strong workforce capable of managing stress and accomplishing challenging tasks. In the field of education in general, and ESL/EFL in particular, studies have proved that NLP enables learners to use more than one learning style in developing basic skills of Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking. NLP also provides the ESL/EFL instructor an additional tool to study behavioral changes that occur in the learner through his responses in the classroom. This research seeks to make a conceptualized understanding of the relationships between acquisition of basic skills and learners’ thinking during the learning process when NLP techniques are applied.  This research study also examines what innovative ways can be introduced in instructor’s teaching methodology after application of NLP techniques in order to make acquisition of skills easier and smooth. The findings of this study are based on experiments conducted on an experimental group, members of which were pursuing/ had pursued the basic skills courses in an undergraduate degree program.
