Vidya Jyoti Educational Society, INDIA
With the globalization and the present day demand of the job market, it has become not only important but mandatory to be equipped with the language called English. It would not be wrong to say that the use of this language is going to make the things different for the youth and the people who seek better earning and living opportunities anywhere in the globe. It has become the prerequisite for the success. However, it is observed that the students living in the rural and the other backward areas of the society are not fully equipped with the use of this language. Teachers and teaching facilities in such areas are very less or in other words they are not up to the level that is required. Moreover, the teachers are also not able to inculcate the environment that will help in the teaching learning of the language. Teaching this language should be targeted in such a way that it should facilitate the student and make him independent enough to use it efficiently and effectively to find himself settled in the situation. Lack of infrastructure and the modern teaching aids are one of the major flaws of the system. On the other hand lack of innovation and efficiency on the part of the teacher make this problem worse. This study aims at finding the prevailing conditions of the schools in rural areas and neglected colonies of Chandigarh and the effective tools that can be used to make the condition of rural youth good in this arena. The need of the hour is to take onus of the responsibility to teach English to the youth and devise such techniques to yield the better results. The responsibility of the teacher has increased from the old pedagogy of lecture method to use new techniques to make the students confident enough to use it for their survival in the present day job culture.
