The quality of our expression depends on our use of speaking skills. The importance and value of speaking English has been accepted worldwide. English language is most dynamic and crucial aspect of universal human interaction. In Pakistan, teaching of English was mainly focused upon reading and writing skills. But in today's world, listening and speaking skills have become much more important than in the past. Present study is an investigation in the field of teaching speaking skills through A.V. Aids. It is said that now the trends have been changed and teachers are getting acknowledged with the importance of speaking skills. Recently, AV. aids are being used frequently in the classrooms to make the teaching learning process easy, attractive and interesting. At the same time when trends are changing on daily basis, there are some Govt. institutes which are still following the traditional methods of teaching speaking skills. In Pakistani scenario, the situation is alarming. Govt. institutes are still following the traditional ways of teaching. So in the present study, the focus is on this matter whether the use of A.V. Aids can be beneficial in bringing a positive change in the teaching learning process of speaking skills for the ESL learners. So the current study investigates the use of A.V.
