The present practice of teaching of English in Pakistan is based on memorization and rote - learning. The teaching of English language is done in the same manner as other subjects where the teacher provides the content and the students learn. The participation of students in the class is not considered to be essential in learning the language. In this study I presented the existing practice and my efforts to introduce ways, especially variety of questioning techniques to enhance students participation. Also interactive ways of teaching grammar that I introduced in the class are also described. The findings of my study suggest that asking a variety of questions increases students' interest in class participation and improves skills of reading.
