As we know that we are living in the world of globalization. English language is a common language and is spoken in many countries. It is considered as universal language. Most of the universities worldwide include English as one of their major subject. India is also competing with the other countries in terms of education and many other things. Hence, we are forced to meet global standards. English is the first and foremost criteria whether you are applying for a job or you are seeking admission in a reputed college/university/institution. Companies welcome those candidates who are fluent English and have the relevant qualification and skill set. However, candidates with the relevant qualification without having proper knowledge of English language are being rejected. The first round is generally self introduction round and the second round is followed by Group Discussion and the final round is the interview.
Learning English is not that difficult if you have taken admission in the right institution. Believe me, it is fun learning and it can be learned easily. However, the time frame for learning English depends on somebodys current level. If somebody has to start from the scratch then it might take 4-5 months if the classes are held from Monday to Friday for 2 hours. People get really scared and become hopeless after trying to learn english language by them or after taking admissions in one or two institutions. However, the fact is that one should do an intelligent search before joining any institution for learning English. There are major difference in writing English and speaking English. Its not necessary that a person who can write fluent English can also speak English fluently. So, you have to be very cautious while joining an institute and before that you need to understand your requirement whether youre going to learn how to write correct English or how to speak English fluently, as many of the institute are able to teach you how to write correct English and they fail when it comes to teach you how to speak English fluently. There are few institutes in Delhi that can teach you how to speak English fluently.
There are few tips which can help you enhance fluency in English:
a) Read fairy tales everyday at least for 10 minutes.
b) Read cartoons or jokes in English.
c) Write your personal diary such as what all did you do the entire day? Or what youre going to do tomorrow? etc.
d) Watch cartoon channels, movie channels like cartoon network, HBO etc.
e) Listen to news.
f) Try to talk in English with your friends or stand in front of the mirror and think that your friend is on the other side of the mirror and start talking about any interesting topic.
g) Think in English about whatever you have done or about whatever you are going to do.
Please understand one thing; Reading, writing, watching, listening and talking makes 100% and this is how you gain confidence and start speaking English fluently. If were talking about importance of English language, how could we avoid importance of personality development? If a person is fluent in English language, but if he doesnt have knowledge about body language and etiquettes, he/she should not be able to demonstrate his/her abilities well. Hence, personality development program is also an important part to learn and you should have the proper knowledge about it. Some of the institutes offer it with no charges or as a combo pack along with spoken English. They also teach you interview techniques as a very minimal cost once you have enrolled yourself for English language course.
To sum up, I would say you should not get scared or loose confidence when it comes to English language. It is just that you should try and find an institute who has the right techniques to teach English speaking course to their students along with personality development program and interview techniques.
If you are able to see your dream day in day out, youre not very far from it.
