Background:

Students are expected to have acquired a reasonable degree of language proficiency in English by the time they come to class XII, and the course will aim, essentially, at promoting the higher-order language skills.

For a large number of students, the higher secondary stage will be a preparation for the university, where a fairly high degree of proficiency in English may be required. But for another large group, the higher secondary stage may be a preparation for entry into the world of work. The Core Course should cater to both groups by promoting the language skills required for academic study as well as the language skills required for the workplace.

Objectives:

The general objectives at this stage are:

v  to listen to and comprehend live as well as recorded oral presentations on a variety of topics,

v  To develop greater confidence and proficiency in the use of language skills necessary for social and academic purposes.

v  To participate in group discussions/interviews, making short oral presentations on given topics.

v  To perceive the overall meaning and organisation of the text (i.e., the relationships of the different “chunks” in the text to each other).

v  To identify the central/main point and supporting details, etc.

v  To build communicative competence in various registers of English.

v  To promote advanced language skills with an aim to develop the skills of reasoning, drawing inferences, etc. through meaningful activities.

v  To translate texts from mother tongue (s) into English and vice versa.

v  To develop ability and knowledge required in order to engage in independent reflection and enquiry.

v  To develop the capacity to appreciate literary use of English and also use English creatively and imaginatively.
