The research participants included 125 students in the first year and three teachers. The purposive sampling was employed.  The site of the study was the University of Sindh, Jamshoro. Based on the findings, it was concluded that the study resulted in valuable insights which can help university teachers understand the phenomenon of language teaching practices. By doing so, they can influence the learning outcomes in their classes and transform the language teaching and learning strategies positively. The study suggests that similar studies need to be replicated to determine effective learning outcomes through effective teaching skills at the university level.
