In addition, it also sought to examine the extent of student-centred learning practices amongst primary school teachers have on their students’ performance in the English language. A survey was carried out to collect data from 147 primary school English language teachers in Perlis.The questionnaires were used to determine the teachers’ belief sand attitudes towards student-centred learning and to measure the extent teachers practice or attempt to practice student-centred learning in their classrooms.The results for March Test and mid-term examinations were also collected from 346 respondents of Year Five students to determine the relationship between student-centred learning practices and the students’ achievement.The findings of this research showed that there were positive attitudes of the English language teachers towards student-centred learning.However, the teachers employ both student-centred and teacher-centred learning strategies in teaching English language for the primary school.Apart from that, the findings also revealed that there was a positive relationship between student-centred learning practices and students’ achievement in the English language subject but the relationship was a weak relationship.As such, recommendations were proposed in terms of improving teacher training and future research to investigate further on student-centred learning practices in Malaysia.
