Although teachers encourage their students to actively participate in the classroom, many of them are still reluctant to participate. However, scholarly research regarding strategies that enhance classroom participation is largely missing in this regard. This study aims to explore different strategies that encourage the participation of students in English language classes, as English holds a prominent place in the education system of Pakistan. Overall, 150 BS English students were selected through a technique of simple random sampling. A sequential explanatory mixed-method research design was followed in this study. The analysis of the questionnaire was conducted through SPSS, and interviews were reviewed through the content analysis method. The results of the study revealed several strategies, such as the use of cold calling, allowing the use of some Urdu, awarding marks, giving adequate wait time, and assigning group or pair work, can enhance students’ participation in the classroom
