Importance of English Language Teaching in India

By Prof (Dr) Shefali Bakshi, Deputy Director, Amity School of Languages

Since the colonization of India, English became the language of our country and is soon expanding. The teaching of English is gaining importance in every area today. With all its countless, instructional objectives like the aural-oral skills of listening and speaking, graphic skills of reading and writing, appreciation, etc, it has become one of the most difficult subjects to teach in the Indian situation. The complexities of the skills involved, alienation and other problems such as differences in the levels of initiation of instruction, differences in the socio-economic status, differences in urban and rural background, scarcity of teachers well-versed in content matter as well as the methodology of teaching, lack of adequate aids and instructional material, hamper in their own way the successful handling of English in the classroom. The teaching of English whether for beginners or for the advanced learners has been a challenging pursuit for the teachers of English especially the area that cover the acquisition of four skills of language – Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing.

Proper training of teachers is of great importance in improving the quality of English education. We need to understand the ethos, culture and the present Indian situation so as to have an effective methodology of developing a second language in our learners. One needs to conduct workshops, training programs, in-service training to our ESL teachers. The process of the training program in ELT will be discussed in detail with relevant, practical examples.

A One / two day training can begin with an Icebreaking session on ‘The Teaching of English Language’, in which the teachers can express their views about the English language. This also gives an insight to…...

Regional Integration

...Regional Integration Ashleigh Addis MGT/448 April 10, 2013 Christy Vasconcellos Introduction Regional integration is achieved when two or more nation states enter into a regional agreement usually for economic or political purposes. The primary objective for regional integration is to help nations to overcome any trading hurdles or political problems that could potentially arise. These problems could be linked to the countries government, economy, and geographic layout. There are many different countries that have made some type of an agreement with another country. In North America, regional integration among America, Canada, and Mexico has had both advantages and disadvantages. The NAFTA, which was first established in 1992 but did not become officially until 94, has become an important part of all three countries. Although all three countries have benefited from the NAFTA, this paper will cover the advantages and disadvantages it has had on Mexico. Advantages of the NAFTA It is safe to say that for the most part the NAFTA has been primarily a blessing for Mexico. A huge advantage for Mexico is the boost it has had on them economically. NAFTA decreased tariffs; essentially meaning that the exports and imports from Mexico increased due to the lower taxes. The NAFTA created many jobs for the people of Mexico. With the increase of jobs, came an increase in wages. The NAFTA is the largest free trade and creates more than $17 trillion in goods and services produced by...

Regional Imbalance

...divisions based on religion, region, caste and language and did not pursue any plan or strategy for a balanced development of the country.These resulted in regional imbalances,and group identities. Subsequently, the independent India saw the rise of regionalism, linguism, separatism, etc. In this chapter we will read about the background, causes and nature of these phenomena and possible ways out to check them. All these are related and interconnected. THE REGION A region is a territory, the inhabitants of which have an emotional attachment to it because of commonality of religion,language, usages and customs, socioeconomic and political stages of development, common historical traditions, a common way of living, etc.Any one or more of these, and above all widely prevalent sentiments of togetherness, strengthen the bond. This territory can coincide with the boundaries of a State, parts of State or even with more than one State. A sense of discrimination or competition on economic, political or cultural grounds, desire for justice or favour gives rise to regionalism. Depending on reasons,and related nature, regionalism can be manifested in many ways like demand for autonomy or powers for State,creation of new State, protection of language or culture of the region or separation from the country. REGIONAL DISPARITIES By regional disparities or imbalances is meant wide differences in per capita income, literacy rates, availability of health and education services,......

Elt System in Bangladesh

...a very important milestone in the national language policy. Though English continued to be the medium of instruction at university level due to scarcity of books and other materials in bangle, the learners at Secondary and Higher Secondary levels were left attended to grew with weakness in English. The standard of English of English Language Teaching (ELT) and learning also was going downwards very fast. There were at least six Education Commissions since independence, but none could be implemented so far. The report of the first Education Commission of Bangladesh was published in 1974 which recommended: It is not necessary to learn any language other than Bangla up to class V. From class VI to class XII, however, a modern and developed foreign language must be learnt compulsorily. For historical reasons and for the sake of reality, English will continue as a second compulsory language. ( Bangladesh Education Commission Report 1974:15 as translated in Rahman 2006) But Bangladesh can no longer be considered as a genuine ESL situation. Neither does it qualify as a purely EFL one. As Bowers (1986) in this study on ELT observes that ESL is lapsing into EFL and this is in fact, the present status of English on Bangladesh (Begum 1999:215) Though few educated professionals felt the need of English to cope with other nations and for scientific advancement, the emotional and political factors influence the subsequent governments to ignore the importance of effective......

Elt System in Bangladesh

...language used in the lesson real & true. The teacher create real or like real situations in which the language can be used. Limitation: Very recently government has founded CLT in the general education. But for the construction of sufficient interaction & quadruple skilled integration in classrooms there await some barriers for the Bangladeshi teachers. The interactional activities such as question & answer task, pear checking, role play ,drama, project, interview, information gap, problem solving ,opinion exchange would be impossible to be held because of our large classroom with 80 to 100 student. The conventional cultural nation of ideal teaching might hamper the Bangladeshi teachers to gear an interactive & integrative class. Very few ELT classes are of Bangladesh are not large. The usual class size exceed seventy-five (Brown 179) or even hundred. Therefore when a teacher attempts to divide such a large class into groups it ultimately gives rises to managerial difficulties. Eventually the pair of group activities monitoring would be complicated for the teacher. This approach demand more time & afford than a teacher can usually afford. What I want to do now in my study: An English teacher plays an important role in teaching English at all level. when he/she teaches English obviously he/she has to follow some method .now-a-days CLT is most acceptable approach which aim is to develop the learner’s communicative skills. English is introduced as a compulsory......

K.Ragini, Assistant Professor, Swarnandhra Engineering College, Narsapur, A.P., Mobile No. 9949396836 ABSTRACT Today English language becomes a window to the world. In this era of globalization, English communication is playing a pivotal role. In the process, different types of skills are needed to every individual. Among all the skills Interpersonal Skills are indispensable. Interpersonal skills are the skills used by every individual in his/her life consciously or unconsciously. People use these skills to communicate and interact with others. New born babies are also developing their interpersonal skills by developing relationships with their parents and siblings.

Interpersonal skills include verbal communication, effective speaking, non-verbal communication, listening skills, problem solving, decision making etc. Teacher and learner are the two eyes to the teaching and learning process. It is just like making sound by clapping. Communication skills as well as interpersonal skills are handled by the teacher simultaneously in the classroom. The effectiveness of the interpersonal skills directly influences......

Regional Asia

...For instance, the establishment of regional surveillance and monitoring frameworks has been pursued by both ASEAN + 3 and the EMEAP. ASEAN + 3 could focus on its financing function and strengthening of bilateral surveillance (between ASEAN + 3 and its individual members), in cooperation with the IMF. The EMEAP, meanwhile, needs to learn from the surveillance activities of the BIS as a role model, and focus on information exchange and monitoring of areas in which central banks have expertise, including the financial markets, payment and settlement, and banking supervision, to promote greater regional monetary and financial stability. If the connections between the various regional forums increase, regional financial cooperation can be promoted more effectively through synergy effects. Therefore, the forums need to engage more actively in official information exchanges. In addition, they would be able to expand the basis for cooperation in the long run by utilising regional central bank training organisations such as the SEACEN Centre, and thus increasing countries’ understanding of and interest in the overall financial cooperation projects being carried out currently. Just as Germany and France played leading roles during the European Union’s long economic integration process, major countries in the Asian region need to show their strong leadership and gather the political willpower to make regional financial cooperation successful in the future.

IntegraçãO Regional

...Capitulo 1 Processo de Integração Regional O Processo de Integração Regional trata de um aprofundamento das relações entre atores com intuito de criar novas formas de governança para determinada região. Por esse motivo que estudo de processo de integração abrange áreas referentes à politica, economia e comercio entre os países envolvidos. Trata-se de uma interdependência onde os entes encontram no bloco regional a possibilidade de maximizar a busca por interesses comuns, primeiramente em torno da eliminação de barreiras ao livre comercio, serviços, capitais e pessoas, e posteriormente com a criação de órgãos supranacionais. No entanto, existe no meio acadêmico uma diversidade de definições acerca do conceito de integração. Para Andrés Malamud, utilizando da definição clássica elaborada por Ernest B. Haas, “La integración regional puede definirse como un proceso por el cual los estados nacionales ‘se mezclan, confunden y fusionan voluntariamente con sus vecinos de modo tal que pierden ciertos atributos fácticos de la soberanía, a la vez que adquieren nuevas técnicas para resolver conjuntamente sus conflictos.’ (Haas, 1971:6). A definición clásica de Ernst Haas debe agregarse que ‘lo hacen creando instituciones comunes permanentes, capaces de tomar decisiones vinculantes para todos los miembros. Otros elementos - el mayor flujo comercial, el fomento del contacto entre las elites, la facilitación de los encuentros o comunicaciones de las personas a través de las fronteras......

Use of Games in the Elt Classroom

...Essay #6 – The challenges of teaching ELT in early childhood It is widely known that English is one of the most predominant languages around the world. For this reason, the demand for learning such language has increased over the last years. In addition, many parents decided to raise their young children bilingually. Nevertheless, teaching kindergarten kids in no at all an easy job. In other words, it can very challenging for there are many factors that instructors need to take into account in order to help learning to take place. To begin with, the most difficult obstacle faced by teachers is how to keep young learners not only focused but also motivated. For many kindergarten children, sitting still for a set period of time, concentrating on a task and paying full attention to the teacher can be a struggle. This is due to the fact that their attention span is quite short. Hence, in order to overcome such obstacle, the educator should be creative enough so as to plan fun, interesting but yet effective lessons. A wide variety of methods and short activities should be included. For instance, the tasks can range from more physical activities like signing and dancing to more relaxed ones such as listening to a story. Another big issue to be considered is the fact that young pupils need to follow routines. When these ones are carefully established and taught, children know what is coming next. This is often comforting since they need stability to keep their stress......

Regional Integration

...Regional Integration against Articles Christian Frisina MGT448 April 16, 2012 Greg Worden NAFTA, stands for North American Free Trade Agreement but who does it represent and what does it accomplish and who does it affect. NAFTA is a union of sorts that links Canada, the United States and Mexico together. The disadvantages of this agreement are diverse and, not purposefully intended. Being knowledgeable of how these pertain to the people will be for reference only because any disagreement can be preventatively fixed or can be fixed through future renegotiations. NAFTA was designed with great intentions in mind but has had severe issues with follow through and consistency. As fair as NAFTA was intended, the agreement did not consider future issues with employment, the environment and pollutants, and other country dependencies upon each other. Concerning employment for Canadian citizens, with the joining of NAFTA Canadian jobs will be lost when plants and factories start to move to the United States. NAFTA promised employment increases to every country within, yet it has slowly dwindled over the years. Instead of increasing, Canada has lost 398, 837 jobs ever since NAFTA began, from 1994 to 2001 ("Why Is Nafta Bad For Canada?", 2008).  Another serious concern is the fact that the environment is being destroyed at an alarming rate becoming toxic waste dumps. This is mainly due to weaker countries with weaker environmental laws being......

Regional Banks

...REGIONAL RURAL BANKS The Narasimham committee on rural credit recommended the establishment of Regional Rural Banks (RRBs) on the ground that they would be much better suited than the commercial banks or co-operative banks in meeting the needs of rural areas.

A significant development in the field of banking during 1976 was the establishment of 19 Regional Rural Banks (RRBs) under the Regional Rural Banks Act‚1976. The RRBs were established “with a view to developing the rural economy by providing, for the purpose of development of agriculture, trade, commerce, industry and other productive activities in the rural areas, credit and other facilities, particularly to small and marginal farmers, agricultural labourers, artisans and small entrepreneurs, and for matters connected therewith and incidental thereto” . * Objective * Functions * Regional Rural Banks in India * Regional Rural Banks in Tamil Nadu RRBs established with the explicit objective of Top * Bridging the credit gap in rural areas * Check the outflow of rural deposits to urban areas * Reduce regional imbalances and increase rural employment generation The main objectives of setting up the RRB is to provide credit and other facilities‚ especially to the small and marginal farmers‚ agricultural labourers artisans and small entrepreneurs in rural areas.

...Extension: What is Regional Integration? [pic] Map of EU Countries Using the Euro Source: European Community, 2004 Regional integration is the process by which two or more nation-states agree to co-operate and work closely together to achieve peace, stability and wealth.Extension. Usually integration involves one or more written agreements that describe the areas of cooperation in detail, as well as some coordinating bodies representing the countries involved. This co-operation usually begins with economicintegration and as it continues, comes to includepolitical integration. We can describe integration as a scale, with 0 representing no integration at all between two or more countries. Ten would represent complete integration between two or more countries. This means that the integrating states would actually become a new country — in other words, total integration. We could also say that on the table below, 1-4 represents economic integration while 6-10 represents political integration. The halfway stage, 5, represents the single market, or the completion of economic integration. |0 |5 |10 | |No integration |Single Market |Total Integration | |Economic Integration |Political Integration ...
