It is being exceedingly felt that that learners' employability quotient needs to be raised through proper teaching of English so as to have an active and productive professional life by shifting the focus on communication aspect of the language rather than its literature.
According to organizers of the seminar, the workshops on the following skills will be organized during the seminar: technological tools for enhancement of learning; using blogs for developing linguistic skills; podcasts and their use in developing oral communication; the virtual classroom; and language laboratory
Key note address for the seminar will be delivered by Dr. Isabelle Perez-Gorewho combines 28 years' experience of teaching, teacher training and programme design and development in English and associated communication skills with extensive experience of working in a wide range of educational contexts in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, inform the seminar organizers.
The main employability skills to be developed through language teaching at the general education level are primarily the communication skills; problem-solving skill; decision-making skill; and commercial awareness. Since the meaning in day-to-day work life situation is to be constructed through language, therefore, specific language development needs to be given priority at the institutional level.
