The survey used the qualitative approach whereby five preschools teachers in Johor Bahru have been interviewed to collect data. A thematic approach was used to analyse the data. As a result, some activities enhancing children in learning English during circle time and several challengers in implementing role play for improving English during circle time were identified.
