This research investigates the implications of adopting e-learning on the teaching and speaking proficiency of English among teachers in Kuwaiti public schools, particularly in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although many private schools in Kuwait had already transitioned to digital learning platforms, public schools lagged behind. This study used interviews and questionnaires to glean insights from teachers, with a particular focus on their experiences and perceptions. Initial findings suggest that while the shift to online learning introduced challenges, it also offered significant opportunities to improve teaching methodologies and English-speaking capabilities. Despite initial anxieties regarding the transition, e-learning proved to be a flexible and convenient medium, prompting a revaluation of its role in Kuwaiti public high school education. The research underscores the significance of understanding the strengths and weaknesses of e-learning in the English curriculum, especially as the world grapples with the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
