Abstract—This study aimed to investigate the place of group work among children in current EFL classes in order to examine the effect of group work on the language performance of children. This study consists of two phases; in the first phase, eighteen classes were observed to discover the place of group work and to find the quality of instruction. In the second phase of the study, the researchers conducted a class during a term (seventy one days) and focused on group work as the main tool for teaching to find out what would be the effects. When compared with the observed classes, the class which was taught in the second phase of the study,enjoyed considerable advantages, especially in memorizing conversations and learning new vocabularies. There was also little phonological and grammatical variation produced among children who learned the material through group work. In the end, some recommendations have been given.
