The researcher's aim was to survey the availability, acquisition, improvisation and utilization of instructional resources for teaching/learning English in primary schools. The emphasis of the study was to establish which resources were available and accessible for use by teachers and pupils; how these resources were acquired and used by teachers and pupils; whether teachers were appropriately up-dated on the best use of resources and whether there were any problems encountered in the acquisition and use of these resources. The study was carried out using a simple survey design where questionnaire, observation/checklist schedule and informal interview were used. The research was done in Kisumu Municipality. The sample consisted of teachers of English handling upper primary classes in four randomly selected schools. Four lessons were observed by the researcher to counter check the information obtained from the questionnaire. Information gathered was then analyzed and presented in tables as percentages, which was then interpreted.
