By: Sumit Kapish
The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.

???????????????????????????????????????Ludwig Wittgenstein?????????

The above quote reflects the necessity to inculcate sound language skills in a scholar. But do the language teachers know the most appropriate methodologies to serve the purpose. Read & ponder to become an effective Educator.

A friendly and amicable environment is mandatory, to facilitate Learning Process for kids. Thereby, the kids should be ushered to their comfort zone by the language faculties. It's a must for a Faculty to realize his/her role in the classroom. For an effective learning ambiance one need to act as a Facilitator. The ideology to rule or making learning a compulsion for the scholars shall be thoroughly eliminated from the teaching methodologies globally. One must understand that the set Blue Prints of Pedagogy could not be followed blindly for all the aspirants. As all the human beings possess some unique features, which are matchless in one way or the other. Similarly, all the scholars develop their specific perceptions towards learning or understanding.

More importantly language deals with literature, and eventually touches the emotional side of humans. A prose which brings tears in one's eyes, may not stir a single emotional string in the heart of another. Some scholars may have an intrinsic interest towards philosophy or spirituality, others may find romance interesting. These individual interests of scholars are a testimony to their preferences in life. And the Language Faculties shall not force an aspirant to learn a language with one particular theme. Literature is MOTLEY, and is identical to life. Let an aspirant pick the colours of his/her choice to paint the canvas of their lives. A deliberate attempt to manipulate one's learning methodology shall only delay the process and may also make the aspirant loose interest completely.

While learning a language one needs to fall in love with it, and the faculty should be in constant search of innovative ways to accelerate the learning process. The primary task of a faculty today is to motivate the aspirants and make them believe their ability. A rise in the confidence level of aspirants does wonders for them. The much desired fluency in language depends largely on one's confidence level.? ???????????
