English Languages Communication Skills

Syllabus of Electronics and Communication of JNTU Kakinada
In view of the growing importance of English as a tool for global communication and the consequent
emphasis on training students to acquire communicative competence, the syllabus has been designed to
develop linguistic and communicative competence of Engineering students. The prescribed books and the
exercises are meant to serve broadly as students’ handbooks.
In the English classes, the focus should be on the skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking and for
this the teachers should use the text prescribed for detailed study. For example, the students should be
encouraged to read the texts/selected paragraphs silently. The teachers can ask comprehension questions
to stimulate discussion and based on the discussions students can be made to write short
paragraphs/essays etc.
The text for non-detailed study is for extensive reading/reading for pleasure by the students. Hence, it is
suggested that they read it on their own with topics selected for discussion in the class. The time should be
utilized for working out the exercises given after each section , as also for supplementing the exercises with
authentic materials of a similar kind for example, from newspaper articles, advertisements, promotional
material etc.. However, the stress in this syllabus is on skill development and practice of language skills.
a. To improve the language proficiency of the students in English with emphasis on LSRW skills.
b. To equip the students to study academic subjects with greater facility through the theoretical and practical
components of the English syllabus.
c. To develop the study skills and communication skills in formal and informal situations.
Listening Skills:
1. To enable students to develop their listening skill so that they may appreciate its role in the LSRW skills
approach to language and improve their pronunciation
2. To equip students with necessary training in listening so that can comprehend the speech of people of
different backgrounds and regions
Students should be given practice in listening to the sounds of the language to be able to recognise them, to
distinguish between them to mark stress and recognise and use the right intonation in sentences.
• Listening for general content
• Listening to fill up information
• Intensive listening
• Listening for specific information
Speaking Skills :
1. To make students aware of the role of speaking in English and its contribution to their success.
2. To enable students to express themselves fluently and appropriately in social and professional
• Oral practice
• Describing objects/situations/people
• Role play – Individual/Group activities (Using exercises from all the nine units of the prescribed text:
Learning English : A Communicative Approach.)
• Just A Minute(JAM) Sessions.
Reading Skills:
1. To develop an awareness in the students about the significance of silent reading and
2. To develop the ability of students to guess the meanings of words from context and grasp the
overall message of the text, draw inferences etc.
• Skimming the text
• Understanding the gist of an argument
• Identifying the topic sentence
• Inferring lexical and contextual meaning
• Understanding discourse features
• Recognizing coherence/sequencing of sentences
NOTE : The students will be trained in reading skills using the prescribed text for detailed study.
They will be examined in reading and answering questions using ‘unseen’ passages which
may be taken from the non-detailed text or other authentic texts, such as
magazines/newspaper articles.
Writing Skills :
1. To develop an awareness in the students about writing as an exact and formal skill
2. To equip them with the components of different forms of writing, beginning with the lower order ones.
• Writing sentences
• Use of appropriate vocabulary
• Paragraph writing
• Coherence and cohesiveness
• Narration / description
• Note Making
• Formal and informal letter writing
• Editing a passage
In order to improve the proficiency of the student in the acquisition of the four skills mentioned above, the
following texts and course content, divided into Eight Units, are prescribed:
