for the Students:
Students exhibited their communicative skills through enactment of drama. Each
team consisted of more than 10 students, and this activity enabled the students
to overcome their stage fear and enhance their confidence.
Declamation is one of the most significant activities which played a major role
in making the students appear before larger audience and speak in English with
courage and confidence. Though the students were initially reluctant to take
part in the activity owing to their stage fear, their participation made them
more confident and more skillful in their communicative skills in English.
In addition to participation in declamation, the students were also encouraged
to take part in debate whereby they were able to learn the art of systematic
argumentation in English language. The students were very vibrant to put forth
their viewpoints. They also actively took part in role plays, which enabled
them to improve their fluency and body language.
Students were made to listen to the stories in the language lab and they were
asked questions based on the stories. This activity improved the listening and
comprehension skills of the students.
Students were involved in skit, declamation and debate. In spite of the
reluctant attitude of the students, teachers encouraged the students to take
part in these activities. The students began to gradually shed their
inhibitions and participate voluntarily. They showed a significant progress in
gaining confidence and improving their communicative skills in English. The
students were encouraged to think creatively to complete the tasks given in the
the completion of the course, there was a significant progress in the Listening,
Speaking, Reading and Writing skills of the students. Students who had
tremendous stage fear were able to overcome it and speak fluently in English.
They could easily take part in Group Discussions and exhibit their views in
English. Students who had Tamil as the medium of instruction at the school
level gained confidence to speak and write in English.
