This article is a deep study about the use of visual aids in Communicative English Language Teaching at ‘KAMPUSE’ and ‘IKALA’ and ‘IHUMULE’high schoolsand suggests some remedial proposals. These schools are located in the Eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo. To achieve our objectives of bringing this work to fruition I applied the recommended procedures of research. Thus, I applied library research which helped me review the literatures of other researchers and be aware of what has been done by my elders as well as by scientific authorities. I also used the internet browsing which helped me get some authentic data. The field work helped me be aware of what is going on at the three above msentioned schools concerning the use of visual aids during the teaching of vocabulary lessons: the attitudes of pupils and teachers during English classes. This approach revealed to me that the teachers are not qualified in the teaching of the English language, and pupils are just like mere observers within the English classes. Teachers do not care about pupils’ mastery or not. Thus, I have suggested some useful types of visual aids and the methodology related to the use of the latter. It has also shown some guidelines to follow when these teachers are to teach vocabulary lessons or attempt to design visual aids.
