DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH


About


   English is one of the most important languages in the world. No one can deny the importance of English in contemporary times since it is the second most spoken language in the world and the lingua franca in many professions. It is the language of science, technology, education, employment, trade, economy, commerce, medicine, aviation, and so on. It acts as a link language among people of different cultures.


Paramount of the College


   The English Department of the College plays a major role in the overall personality development of the students. They help to strengthen the English language skills of the students, many of whom arrive with poor communication skills in the language. The teachers fulfill the objectives of these courses by developing the four basic skills of language - listening, speaking, reading and writing - by exposing the students to literary texts, thereby sensitizing them to literature and helping them to give vent to their creative expressions by engaging them with some real life issues of the present times. Apart from teaching the prescribed papers, the Department plays an active role in preparing them for various intra and inter-college debate and declamation competitions and grooms them for their professional life.
