Difficulties in learning English as a Second Language

Dr. R. Kannan


            English is being treated as a world language because of its vast presence all over the world. At this juncture, learning English gains currency. Majority of Indian students, particularly from rural pockets consider this seven-letter word as a magical and a mystical word. The moment they hear something in English they start feel uneasiness. As a result of this, teachers who handle English classes face insurmountable difficulties. Students too find it difficult to listen and to understand the English language.  What are the reasons for this? What are the remedial measures to be taken to alleviate these problems? This paper critically evaluates the problems faced by students in the language classroom when they enter into college environment. Appropriate and adequate remedial measures are cited for the successful rectification of these problems too.
