The study determined and analyzed the struggles of the TVL HE learners in their communicative skills. This utilized the qualitative method of research, particularly the phenomenological approach. The one-on-one interview was used to gather data. The participants were 12 grade 12 TVL HE learners of DEGMNHS during the SY 2019-2020. It was found that negative feelings caused the struggles of the grade 12 in communicating using the English language. It is concluded that negative feelings of the learners hinder them from being well-versed in their use of the English language. Engaging in meaningful and purposive communicative activities addresses the poor performance of the learners. The Code-switching strategy used by the learners to be understood does not help them be proficient in using the English language. The enhancement activities help the learners develop their communicative skills. The Enhancement Model towards Conversational English Fluency for Grade 12 Learners should be considered for implementation in the TVL HE strand for the Senior High School.
