Rohini HB and Sharan SJ
English is recognised to be, in Indian minds, a socially well respected and a standardised way of living. In present times, English is the most preferred language. Though Language learning is a natural process for all, the students of other languages, are required to put effort in learning a foreign language. The students of rural and semi-urban areas in India face such problems for English is not their mother-tongue. Nowadays most of the institutions are filled with heterogeneous classes where students of different levels of attention, interest, learning styles, speed, maturity, types of intelligence are formed to be in groups which pose direct challenges to teachers. Teachers' main objective is to connect with all the students by interacting and monitoring them in various other ways to achieve effective teaching. Students of the rural areas assume English as a subject study and do not realize the need and importance of English as a language of communication used around the world. A systematic approach should be followed in order to solve the hurdles. Moreover the teachers should aim teaching not just for knowledge but skill. This paper deals with the problem of teaching English in mixed ability classes to achieve better results in the teaching and learning of English.
