Likewise ,  English   language    has  come   across  a  long  way   through   its  wide  use  and  acceptance  around  the   world . But  the   acquisition  of   Language  to  the  non  -native  English  speaking   is   variable   due  to  level   of   accomplishment   in  the  aforesaid  language. In this  article   a  focus  is given  on  the  utility  and  efficacy  of  approaches ,  methods    and   techniques   in  accordance   with   decisive  factors  under  the  aegis  of   ambience  to improve   the   skills  in   English   language. The  article   also  describes  some  internal   linguistic   ways   and   means  to  learn  a  language  with  the  function  of   the  intrinsic  and  extrinsic   faculties   which   is  to  be  experimented  and   justified  to  have  a  greater   accomplishment   in  the  projected  language

This paper examines current research and developments in the field of language learning and teaching, focusing on role of educational technology and digital communications in acquisition of new or second languages. The purpose of the study is to consider the impact of evolving technologies, including devices such as computers, smartphones, and tablets, as well as more traditional media such as film, photography and written or printed materials. A review of  current literature and studies in language learning is presented, describing works on the ethics, values and culture of the internet.  The general research question is, How can new technology be used to enhance language learning by second language and foreign language learners? The study employs an interpretivist, qualitative research method, and concludes that digital technologies constitute a new literacy and essential component of language learning and communication. Further research into the various tools and techniques of digital instruction is recommended.

The Effects of Code Switching On English Language Teaching and Learning at Two Schools in Sibbinda Circuit (Published)

Code-switching is mostly used by different language users, this diversion from the language of instruction to the language that accommodates is said to have certain effects on learning and teaching. Though code-switching has been discouraged, little is known whether it has negative or positive effects on English language learning and teaching. This study mainly focused on the effects that code-switching has on English teaching and learning. This study was guided by the following research questions: What impacts does code-switching have on the learning and teaching of English? What perception do learners and teachers have towards code-switching at the selected school? And how does the society influence code-switching at the selected school? A qualitative research design was used for this study. The population consisted of two schools (one primary school, and a secondary school, but it focused on upper primary grades only). The sample consisted of grade 5-7 learners and teachers. Nine learners and four teachers were selected to participate in this article. Data was collected using interviews and observations. Code-switching has positive effects on English language learning and teaching. It helps learners to understand difficult aspects of the lesson taught and therefore are able to follow the instructions given. When the teacher explains what was said in mother tongue, it helps learners to participate especially those with English learning difficulties. It also helps them to express themselves if they do not know how to say certain things in English. Furthermore, code-switching helps teachers manage their classrooms.

Different Comprehension Strategies to Improve Student’s Reading Comprehension (Published)

Comprehension is the ultimate goal of all reading; that is, the ability to understand a text underlies all reading tasks. Thus, main-idea comprehension should be at the core of all reading instruction. In most classes, comprehension is tested as the class reviews post-reading comprehension questions. Instead of testing comprehension, we can help our students by teaching comprehension. Simply put, reading comprehension is the act of understanding what you are reading. While the definition can be simply stated the act is not simple to teach, learn or practice. Reading comprehension is an intentional, active, interactive process that occurs before, during and after a person reads a particular piece of writing. Reading comprehension is one of the pillars of the act of reading. The use of effective comprehension strategies that provide specific instructions for developing and retaining comprehension skills, with intermittent feedback, has been found to improve reading comprehension across all ages.
