Investigating the Effectiveness of L2 Kiswahili Teaching Strategies in Kenyan Primary Schools

Salome Jeromin Kotira | Lou Shizhou [2]


Abstract: This research intended to investigate the effectiveness of teaching strategies of Kiswahili as a second language (L2) in primary schools in Kenya. The study was conducted using interview, observation, and focus group discussion to examine teaching strategies of Kiswahili as a second language in primary schools. The focus was to explore the effectiveness of teaching strategies of Kiswahili L2 in Kenya. The findings explored that some of the teaching strategies of Kiswahili (L2) in Kariobangi North, St. Daniel Comboni and Ngunyumu primary schools are facing several challenges due to school and classroom environments. The findings also discover that some of the L2 teaching strategies are being skipped by teachers because they cannot be used in Kenyan classrooms. The underlying reason could be overcrowded classrooms, and lack of teaching tools. This paper concludes with some suggestion about second language teaching in Kenya.
