INTRODUCTION

The English Department of Keshav Memorial Institute of Commerce and Sciences is as old as the college itself, being one of the first departments to start functioning in 1995. The Department has been handling English language classes for the various courses offered by the college since the day of its inception. From then, till today, the Department has been responsible for the teaching of English for the Degree courses. The fact to be noted is the way the Department has moved with the times in reviewing and updating its pedagogical tools and strategies from time to time. The strength of the department lies in the well qualified teaching staff. We follow the latest pattern of CBCS System as prescribed by the Osmania University.

The department is proud to state that since the academic year of 2015-16 has embarked on teaching communicative skills in English. It has started a Certificate Course in Communicative Skills in English. The emphasis is on Listening, Reading, and Writing skills besides Pronunciation. The main thrust of the syllabus is on Communication and Personality Development through activity based skills testing their creative abilities. In 2017 new Add – on Courses began with the collaboration of Research Scholars from English and Foreign Languages Institute. The Courses are: Certificate Course in language proficiency & Certificate Course in Advanced English and Campus Recruitment.. The Department is proud to state that all the students who participated in these courses were placed in very good companies. The Department has introduced a new method of evaluation blending the language component with text based questions. It is felt that this type would test a student’s ability to comprehend and offer inferential answers.

We also run a Literary Club named Keshav Vagvardhini Parishad, which actively conducts training sessions in Group Discussions, JAM, Poetry Recital, Debating, and Declamation etc. Also members actively engage themselves in intercollegiate and Intra –collegiate Competitions. Many distinguished visitors from JCI International, Toastmasters Club, Ramachandra Mission, and Vivekananda Rock Memorial enriched the experience of the students and the faculty.
