Dr. Prashant Mahajan
Teaching as a profession is sacrosanct and carries the highest responsibility. It requires aptitude, temperament, planning and skill development on the part of the teacher. He needs to recognize the needs of the learners as well as to diagnose the constraints of the teaching-learning process. A teacher is a super organized multi-tasker. He faces different challenges every day at the intellectual, creative and emotional levels. He is a friend, a guide, a mentor, a critic and what not. A teacher is strongest pillar of the society. Hence it is all the more important for a teacher to be skillful.
Taking English language teaching-learning in consideration, skills may be defined as habit formation which may further be splitted into the cultivation of listening skills, reading skills, writing skills and speaking skills. At SSC level, a student is generally expected to have cultivated the habit to comprehend, to understand and apply learning. But in actual situation, these things are absent from the curricula in most of the schools whether of Hindi or English medium. On the other hand, the non-formal institutions possess a repertoire of teaching skills in order to make language learning easier. Therefore, the present paper makes an attempt to compare the TESL skills at both stages, expecting to find a solution of the challenges that which are faced at SSC-level and non-formal environment.
