Abstract: The principal objective of the research study is to examine the effectiveness of teaching the consonant sounds of English through the exposition strategy. The researcher followed a pre-experiment research method, especially one- group- pretest- posttest- design which included a pretest measure followed by a treatment and a posttest for a single group. A set of hundred multiple choice question items were administered to the mass of 38 students at Makawanpur Multiple Campus in Makawanpur District, Nepal in the Academic Year 2017-2018. The simple random sampling technique was used to select 35 students out of 38 students who comprised the population for the study. The result showed there was a statistically significant difference between the Total Pretest Mean Score (M=21.800, SD= 2.826 and N=35) and the Total Posttest Mean Score (M= 45.971, SD=7.002 and N=35) of the students. The statistics of (df) =34, p<..05, the observed t-value= 19.961 and the table t-value = 2.032 at 0.05 significance level of the test showed that teaching the consonant sounds through the exposition strategy was effective at this campus. This article is assumed to be useful to those who are interested in teaching and learning consonant sounds of English.
