To achieve the objectives of the study, the research was organized according to a quasi-experimental design with experimental and control groups. The experimental (n=30) and the control group (n=30) were purposefully chosen to participate in the experiment among the 10th grade students in Al-Methaq secondary school in Ma’rib City in the first semester of the study year (2021-2021). The study instrument was an achievement test administered before and after conducting the experiment. The validity and reliability of the instrument were ensured. The collected data were analyzed using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS).

The results of the study showed a positive effect of using group work strategy on students’ achievement in English. In addition, the results showed that there were statistically significant differences in the mean scores between the two groups in the achievement of English.
