Coaching classes for academic subjects are old phenomenon in Bangladesh, there is a huge number of students go to coaching centers for learning English as second language (L2) because coaching centres use different teaching methods that help students to understand the language (L2) better. The aim of this thesis is to study the positive and negative effects of coaching classes on English language learning in secondary education (from class 6 - class 12) as being L2. The data collected from various schools and coaching centres for English language of Dhaka through a number of questionnaires to collect their opinions from students, teachers and parents, and by means of class room (both school and coaching) observation concerning the problems faced by English language learners. And classroom observation was done successfully to find out where there was any lacking in English teaching or not. The findings from the survey show that secondary school level students are satisfied with the English lessons that provided coaching centres. Both teachers and students agreed that students are more likely to have coaching classes than paying attention to regular classroom studies. But learners should not fully depend on coaching centres. Students, parents and teachers should understand why students need extra care for learning English Language and how he/she can get benefits fully from those private classes known as coaching centres. So, Bangladesh government should raise awareness about it.
