Abstract—The research purpose is to develop and evaluate the effectiveness of special vocabulary and grammar tasks for groups learning English online. The sample consisted of 100 students from Middle Eastern University in Jordan. The scholar used an experimental method and methods of observation, description, comparison and testing to investigate the problem. The results showed that online English learning based on special practical assignments and involving lexical and grammar tasks can improve the level of student’s language knowledge and their conversational skills. The resulting value confirmed the statistically significant difference between the test results and improvements in the experimental group. The research found that the experimental group showed better speaking skills compared to the control group. It is recommended to integrate similar practical tasks into educational curricula to foster quality education and the development of conversational skills among students studying the English language in an online environment. This approach has proved to be advantageous for instructors of professionally oriented English language courses, equipping them with an effective tool to enhance the quality of instruction and facilitate the linguistic aptitude growth of their students. Such a pedagogical format fosters active participation and collaboration among students, potentially contributing to a more profound and well-rounded language acquisition process.
