ABSTRACT This project is about the influence of mother tongue on learners’ performance in written English at primary level in Nakawa Division. Questionnaires were designed and used to get primary data; where by respondents were required to answer the questions, the researcher conducted face to face interviews with pupils and teachers on issues pertaining to the influence of mother tongue on learners’ performance in written English at primary level. During the study the researcher found out that there is an in~uence of mother tongue on learners; performance. It was also found out that most pupils speak Luganda both inside and outside the class and this has had negative influence on both written and spoken English. In conclusion it was found that there is significant relationship between mother tongue interference and learners performance in written language at primary level. Among the recommendations given by the researcher were teachers should be strict and self conscious about the influence Luganda has on learners’ written English. Pupils should also be encouraged by their teachers of English to get used to the reading culture.
