English Training Program: An Overview
English has become the global language and people from different walks of life realize the significance of it. The prime objective of English Training Program is to enable the students of DiST to communicate in English.
The program is being conducted in an interactive manner. The students have a lot of opportunities to interact with each other and the trainer. The activities, which are planned in advance with the help of scientific research, are interesting and exciting, allowing the students to assimilate the structures and vocabulary subconsciously. The students engage themselves in different group activities like discussions and role plays supported by creative feedback. The feedback is given only after the completion of the activity to avoid interruption from the trainer which may affect the performance. However, the trainer extends his or her helping hand, if the situation demands so, even during the activity.
- Games: Certain games which would engage the students in communicating in English.
- Role Plays: The students are given different contexts and characters and they play their respective roles.
- Public Speaking: The students are trained in public speaking under the guidance of a trainer.
- Casual Interaction: The students are guided into practicing every day conversational language.
- Group discussion: The students discuss different topics to improve their interactive skills and creative thinking.
- Mock interviews: Mock interviews with feedback improve their ability to perform at interviews.
