Subjects of the Department

“English made easy”  by the Department of English, Osmania University has prepared the syllabus in consonance with the CBCS pattern (Choice Based Credit System) . It includes four genres-Short Fiction, Prose, Poetry and drama  under the I Semester and II Semester of the I year. The text makes an attempt to be more learner-centric with a view to emphasize more on making the students perform  all the LSRW skills [Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing] in the class and biding adieu  to rote learning  thereby giving a scope to the students to develop their competency in the language.

“English in Use” for the II year undergraduates by the Department of English , Osmania University under CBCS pattern (Choice Based Credit System) prescribes five units in the III semester and five units in the IV semester. The first three units of the text deal with poem, prose, grammar and vocabulary. Also in IV and V units apart from grammar and vocabulary it has topics on Review Writing and CV Writing (Curriculum Vitae)

The aim of the text as the title suggests is as how to use English rather than the usage of the language. The selected topics in the text helps the students to meet a variety of real-life communication needs thus facilitating and equipping the students with the practical, emotional intellectual and creative aspects of language. As said by the editors of the text the selection of the topics has been guided by three broad criteria : READBILITY, TEACHABILITY, TESTABILITY which is enjoyed by the students and the teachers also find the SUITABILITY of the text for teaching in the classroom. The text as such is more oriented towards imparting practical knowledge rather than only assimilating theoretical knowledge.
