Abstract

This experimental research examines the impact of Small Group Discussion (SGD) method on English language development among low and high achiever students compared to the Traditional Lecture Method (TLM). Thirty students each were assigned to control (TLM) and experimental (SGD) groups. Pre-tests were administered to assess baseline knowledge, followed by an intervention period where the experimental group received SGD instruction. Post-tests gauged improvement in language learning. Statistical analyses, including t-tests, compared pre- and post-test scores between groups. Results indicate SGD significantly enhances English language learning levels, particularly among low achievers, across learning, comprehension, and application domains. For high achievers, SGD demonstrates superior effectiveness in promoting advanced language proficiency. Findings underscore the efficacy of interactive and collaborative learning approaches in fostering language development and academic success. Recommendations include integrating SGD into curricula and providing professional development for teachers to optimize instructional strategies.
