Learning environment plays a vital role regarding learning outcomes. Second language (L2) teaching/learning process is thought to be tough in Malaysia educational system. Suggestopedia is a way of providing better learning environment to the learners for teaching a second or foreign language. This method enhances learners’ interest towards learning and they feel relaxed that makes them learn quickly. This method uses soft music to cope up with the psychological barriers that hinder during the process of learning. Such barriers include class room or situational anxiety, boredom, traditional ways of teaching/learning, exhausting routines and fear of facing the teacher or using second language. All these barriers are due to different social pressures, political conditions in the country (that influence every person around) and educational methods/practices that the students have to face and their interest level drops to a level that is harmful during the process of proper learning. To cope up with these problems during L2 learning, Suggestopedia can prove to be useful and powerful technique by the institutes and teachers. This study aims to find out the effectiveness and importance of Suggestopedia in L2 class to get the desired results and learning outcomes.
