This paper aimed to see the comparative effect of the Eclectic Approach of teaching on English communication skills— listening, speaking, reading and writing at Elementary Level. The objectives of the study were: to see the effect of Eclectic Approach on listening skill; to investigate the effect of the eclectic approach on speaking skill; to delve into the effect of the eclectic approach on reading skill; and to look into the effect of the Eclectic Approach on writing skill. Fifty six male students studying English in 8th class at Govt. High School Mian Banda, Dir Lower, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan were taken as a sample. The study was conducted through pre-test post-test equivalent design. Pair random sampling technique was used to form two groups — experimental and control. Both the groups were taught English grammar contents, specified in the National curriculum for 8th class. The experimental group was taught through the Eclectic Approach while the control group was left to its routine treatment. The experiment lasted for six weeks. Fourteen lesson plans were taught to both groups. Teacher-made pre-test and post-test were used to collect the data. In order to analyze the data, paired t-test was used. From the findings of the study, it was concluded that students who received experimental treatment outscored the ones who received routine treatment. Thus, it is recommended that the policy makers and curriculum planners should implement the Eclectic Approach for teaching English communication skills at all levels of education.
