PREFACECommunication skills have been the key to success for securing placements. It hasbeen observed that students have mastery in their specific domains, yet their communicationskill in English is not satisfactory. This has led to a scenario where there is a supply-demandmismatch. While there are adequate employment opportunities, there are not enough eligiblecandidates to deliver on the job. Hence, there are a number of unemployable youth whohave not been able to procure jobs in the organized sector for want of good communicationskills. Good communication skills also play a pivotal role to scale heights in one’s career.Hence, it was felt that there is a dire need to restructure the English language curriculum ofthe Polytechnics in the State to foster internalization of the structure of the English languagethrough content.This textbook has been designed with activities that have been arranged in aprogressive manner so that the learning of the language is easy, linear and applicationoriented. The textbook is organized into 5 units for each semester. While the first three unitsfocus on sensitizing the students to the aspects of the language through a series of activitiesto develop grammatical applications, vocabulary, listening, reading, writing and speakingskills, unit 4 and 5 deal with composition. The highlight of this book is that it does not makeroom for memorization or rote learning. Moreover, most of the activities have beendeveloped with the core content from the physics and chemistry textbooks of thePolytechnics.This would mean that the English language learning is just scaffolding of thevocabulary internalized through the core subjects.The objective is now, therefore, to enhance the communication skills in English byproviding adequate opportunities to practice.As there is ample scope for the students to practice using the language,internalization of the rules of English and using it in real life contexts shall be possible.Learner autonomy has been built into the activities which will provide hands on experience inusing the language and thus “learning by doing”.- T. JayasudhaResearch OfficerTANSCHEvi

2 English Communication – INAMES and ACTIONSLanguage is a unique means of human communication. The irst men probably started using gruntsand other sounds to communicate with each other. Gradually, speciic sounds began to be used to denotespeciic things or actions. As man evolved, the need to use structured sounds and words becameimportant. This need resulted in the evolution of language. In the early days, when language was in theinitial stages of development, there was no grammar.Grammar is nothing but rules that help us use the language correctly so that we are understood byothers in the community. For instance, when a person wants to learn to drive a car, knowledge of thekey parts of the car is very important. Knowing what a clutch, gear, and accelerator are, is one aspect;how to apply them is another. The irst one is theory and the second one is practice. A combination ofboth of these – knowledge of the parts and actually applying it, is what happens when a person attemptsto learn to drive a car. The person is given training to drive a car practically, which helps in putting theknowledge acquired into use. Similarly, grammar is made up of rules which enable a person to use language effectively.Parts of SpeechAll words in English can be classiied into eight groups called parts of speech: noun, verb, adjective,pronoun, preposition, conjunction, adverb and interjection. Let us learn the parts of speech one by onein order to use the language meaningfully and (joy)NounIdea(Internet)Thing(Laptop)

The dynamics of group size is an important component of group work. A small group is often considered to consist of three or more people (Beebe & Masterson, 2003). Groups of two are called dyads and are not encouraged for group work because there are not a sufficient number of individuals to generate creativity and a diversity of ideas (Csernica et al., 2002). In general, it is suggested that .
