About the BookThere is no denying the fact that the ELT world has changed drastically from the teacher-oriented to a more learner-oriented one. Unfortunately, India is too slow to this change. Barring a few educational institutions we continue to carry on with the old and outdated methods and materials. English is still taught here as a “content subject” rather than a “language subject”. No doubt, the shift is not easy to achieve. In fact, it is not as much a change in materials as a change in the total outlook and behaviour. It implies looking at language from a whole new perspective.
It is against this backdrop that the present book has been written. It aims at providing an insight into existing language teaching in India. It discusses at length all the issues related to the Indian curriculum. Problems that are likely to be faced by teachers, students and curriculum-framers in adopting this method are discussed thread-bare and proper solutions provided. It is hoped that the book will be of great help to researchers, scholars and syllabus framers, besides being a reference book for students of English language and linguistics.About the Author/sMubeena Fazili has done her postgraduation in English Literature and has obtained a Ph.D. degree for her research work on English Language Teaching from the University of Kashmir in 2003.
