Abstract

With the adoption of the New Education Policy 2020, India is in for a revolutionary shift in various foci of our education system. The change is on the anvil in various areas like the choice of courses, course structures, teaching methodologies, lateral entries, evaluation system, teacher training opportunities, infrastructure, etc. The central government has also invited all stakeholders and general public to share their perceptions of desirable changes in various course curricula in order to finalize the National Curriculum Framework. While there may be various perspectives of the issue, we need to be aware of the requisites keeping in mind an ordinary student in India. This paper focusses on the teaching/learning of English language only at the college level which suffers from different anomalies due to which a lot of national talent pool is getting wasted. Apart from a few specimens of texts unsuitable for contemporary times and the ones that should be brought in, it also explores allied issues which have a bearing on the teaching of English language in our classrooms.
