Introduction:

Ability to communicate in English is global requirement since English is global language of communication. It is found that Indian learners of English language and literature are knowledgeable still they are weak in communication skills. The root cause of this lack of opportunities of exposure is in traditional education pattern. It is observed that many of last year students of the department of English hold from rural area where they do not have any exposure to communicate in English. Besides lack of confidence, their weak economic condition holds them back from improvement. Bearing this in mind, the department of English designed a course in spoken English focusing improving communicative competence especially for the last year students of the department.
