Author(s): Thirumalai Rajan R, Sankar G
Abstract: There was a time to conduct seminars, workshops, conferences on Indian Writing English, Immigrant Writings and so on. Now it is the trend to focus on ‘Employability’. As citizens of global village or in a country where westernization is adopted in faster pace, it may be easy to adopt education culture of western countries also. Now in India, youngsters are somewhat matured than those of previous generations. They need living role models not guidelines. This paper will discuss on ‘learning english for employability’ not ‘teaching english’. Now teaching-learning process is learner centered. Therefore, becoming employable can also be learner centered. How much important it is to make the students realize the need of english language, how a learner can be exposed to a work culture, what the role of stakeholders like government, universities, institutions, parents and teachers is in that.
