In order to get relevant data from respondents, the researchers used the survey method of gathering data from secondary school teachers and students. The sample size of the study was 130 teachers and 300 students from all public secondary schools of district Bagh. A questionnaire was developed on a five-point Likert rating scale. The researchers listed common students’ problems and teacher respondents to identify the degree of their occurrence in school by using the questionnaire. The findings of the study showed that there is a positive and significant relationship between teachers’ language skills (writing and speaking) and the performance of the students. The more the teachers were found skillful in language the performance was good by the students.
