English Language Teaching

About

Established in 1957, the Department of English Language Teaching has been rendering significant service to the cause of English Teaching in the northeastern states by providing professional training to teachers of English from schools and colleges.

Our aim has been to help English Language Teaching evolve, flourish and establish itself as a Service Discipline among different learner/user groups in Assam and the Northeast by developing professional competence and vocational commitment in them through teaching and research, training and extension, consultancy and collaboration with local, national and international bodies.

Developing Personality and Communication Skills

The faculty makes conscious efforts to build confidence in the students and develop their inner creativity through an interactive teaching-learning methodology which involves group-work, brainstorming and presentation.

The department has introduced the concept of collaborative learning which ensures maximum student participation. It has also actively introduced healthy practices as per UGC 10th Plan Guidelines by making students stakeholders in the learning process. Peer interaction and support among students is encouraged.

 

Peer Teaching

The department introduced the concept of Peer Teaching in Refresher Courses in ELT to train participants in communicative methodology, replacing the existing system of seminar presentations.

The Department also initiated the process of interactive learning through pair and group work activities at the same level, giving participants hands-on experience in classroom methodology

 

NET/JRF Counselling

The Department offers academic counselling and study materials to students interested in qualifying for the National Eligibility Test (NET) and Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) examination conducted by the UGC.

 

Developing Language Skills

Students are offered guidance in improving their skills in speaking and writing to enable them to face the demands of a competitive job market. Such a job market includes professional training institutes, the upcoming Information Technology enabled Services (ITeS) sector as well as the more traditional avenues of school- and college-level teaching of English. ELT skills development is in high demand for jobs in Call Centres and in coaching institutes for IELTS, TOEFL etc.
