The present research discusses the impact and effectiveness of the developed modules by the researcher in the enhancement of English language abilities among the students of the primary teaching education programme in terms of their academic achievement in LSRW (Listening, Speaking Reading and Writing) skills using quasi-experimental research design. Mann-Whitney Test was used to study the comparability of the students of the Experimental and Control groups. Both the group students were found statistically comparable in terms of their English language proficiency a prior to the test. Later on, after implementation of developed modules, it was found out that experimental group students outperformed the control group students (p=0.002)
