UNLOCK THEIR FUTURE: A SKILLS-BASED APPROACH TO TEACHING AND LEARNING ENGLISH
Edited by
VINEY KIRPAL ( Former Professor of English, IIT Bombay)
&
Shridhar b. Gokhale  ( Former Professor of English, Pune University)
 
English in India is an important subject today. It is also a difficult subject to teach and learn. Large heterogeneous classes, anachronistic syllabi, boring textbooks boringly taught and purposeless examinations de-motivate students from taking English seriously at college.
 
In 21st century India, it is important for professionals to be adept at writing, speaking and understanding English because they have to communicate well with native English- speaking clients. Our graduates need to be trained in these linguistic competencies while yet in college.
 
Unlock their Future: A Skills-based Approach to Teaching and Learning English offers some practical methods and strategies for preparing students from the metros as well as the small towns in English language skills required in their professional lives. 
 
The authors sincerely hope that this book will bring freedom to many English-shy students and corporate executives and make this a standard for teachers and trainers of English language in India.
