Teaching and Learning English Language in India: Issues and Challenges


Dr. Ambika Sharma


English is a widely used language hence referred as the 'Universal Language'. Being the language of the present age, it is taught and learnt as a second language worldwide. In India, English is known both as a language of communication and a medium of coordination for being a great ethnic and linguistic diversity. Of course, modern technology plays a significant role to bestow and acquire language in schools and colleges though it is inadequate in rural areas particularly. At school and college level, the students learn English as well as prepare themselves to get through the exams, however, they don’t make much effort to recognize the language or realize its usefulness. The paper focuses at the importance of English Language Teaching (ELT) and the challenges the teachers as well as the learners encounter while teaching and learning. It also defines the strategies and suggests the ways to overcome these problems.
