English is considered as fascinating and laureates’ language in Pakistan. It has also become a status symbol in our society. Pakistani learners are facing difficulty while studying English because they are not taught English as a skill rather as a subject. For the benefits of students, language teachers had a thrust to invent new methods to satisfy their students’ needs. The current study was designed to explore the utility of combination of grammar translation method and direct method for teaching English at intermediate level. The next objective was to investigate the impact of teaching methods on the effectiveness of teachers separately. All the intermediate level teachers from district Bahawalpur were the population of the study. Four hundred teachers were selected randomly from eighty colleges with equal participation of males and females. A self-constructed instrument Teaching Methods Survey (TMS) was used. Data were analyzed with the help of SPSS version 22. The results revealed that there exists a significant difference between male and female teachers’ effectiveness. The mean score shows that female teachers had improved effectiveness as compared with male teachers. There exists non-significant difference between DM and GTM. A non-significant difference was found between male and female teachers. The analysis revealed a significant difference between male and female teachers. The mean score shows that female teachers had better effectiveness as compared with male teachers. It is recommended that there should be use of both teaching methods in the context of Pakistan. No single method is successful.
