- Blended Learning Methodology as per CEFR
- RKCL’s English course has an emphasis on the functional use of English covering all aspects of Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing (LSRW) and remedy regional language influences.
- RKCL uses the blended learning methodology with digital content for both the trainer as well as the student, enhancing learning, practice and self-assessment, judiciously using the best elements of technology and training pedagogy. The content has rich audiovisual features offering ample practice and self-assessment such as ‘listen-record-compare’ and glossary. The sessions are designed so that the course follows a parallel-structure in which concepts are introduced in the ILT session, and reinforced with practice and an innovative approach to learning in the CBTsession.
- Various role play and free speech activities make the classroom sessions highly interactive and participatory in nature which make even the classroom sessions as interesting as language lab sessions and helps in removing fear amongst the learners and leads them to feel at par with English medium learners.
- The recommended schedule plan shall contain one classroom session followed by one Computer based learning session. The classroom training will be conducted by RKCL Trainer. The Lab sessions will have each student undergoing practice on a computer under the supervision of the trainer. The practice sessions will involve the student in exercises to listen, speak and self-assessment at their own pace repeating exercises as many times as required.
- Online Virtual Classes by RKCL’s Faculty (Batches of 30 learners) using Microsoft Teams: B2 Level faculties
- Assignment and Tasks will be given and evaluated by RKCL’s Faculties
- eContent in LMS and App login for Self-paced learning
- Pre-and-Post Assessments by RKCL
- What Student Gets: Workbook, LMS logins, Microsoft Teams logins
- Tools for practice like Vocabulary building, MTI removal, Word Stress, Recording and evaluation etc. via LMS.
- RKCL content includes a vocabulary of over about 3,500 items that covers a majority of the words used in general communication. Words are introduced in increasing complexity, by way of semantic grouping and highly contextualized to the Indian context with neutral accent that Indian learners can relate to and identify with.
- A word is introduced in it’s near to natural language context where the learner grasps the meaning of the word by the context itself and does not have to refer to the dictionary time and again.
- Words are dealt in such a way, that they get into the learners’ passive repertoire gradually forming a part of active repertoire by way of their using those words in the class room in form of free speech, role play and various other interactive activities. The focus here is on pronunciation and developing comfort with these standard words, not traditional vocabulary building and understand word usage in sentences.
- It’s not only the semantic or segmental aspect of vocabulary that are looked at but also the supra-segmental features such as stress and intonation of the word are taken care of.
- Pronunciation plays a major role in effective communication and therefore a great amount of emphasis is given to
- Correct pronunciation of consonant sounds and vowel sounds
- Syllable and Syllable Stress
- Intonation and Modulation
- Reduce mother tongue influence in speech
- The meaning, pronunciation and the use of the vocabulary item takes place simultaneously. In the initial stages learners first listen to the word used by an expert in the given context. After having listened to the word with its correct pronunciation governed by the correct stress pattern, the learner practices the word by comparing it with the expert’s voice. Once he has grasped the meaning and the right pronunciation of the word the learner puts it to use.
- Irrespective of the teacher’s accent the learners acquire the correct accent as the practice is based on the expert’s neutral accent which is devoid of various regional influences.
- Producing correct consonant and vowel sounds do not guarantee the perfect pronunciations. In English the pronunciation pattern rests on the stress pattern which is based on the syllable pattern.
- In the RKCL English language development programme, there is a great emphasis laid on syllable stress, word stress, intonation and modulation giving rhythm to the language.
- There are about 3000 words practiced with the correct stress pattern giving rhythm to the language. The learners can compare their stress pattern based on the graphic representation appearing on the computer screen by comparing it with that of the expert's.
- The focus of teaching grammar is on
- Using correct grammar
- Overcome Indianisms in speech
- Build functional grammar in the areas of Articles, Adjectives, Prepositions and Tenses
- RKCL helps develop grammar by not teaching grammar overtly. Learners are exposed to various natural language situations where in various grammatical segments come into play. And, in the process they form or invent grammar rules on their own while listening, doing exercises and participating in various activities. In the cases where learners fail to make the correct use the teacher supplies the expression coupled with the relevant rules and facilitates the communication.
- In the conventional grammar class, the grammar lesson begins with talking about the grammar rules where in the learners end up learners remember rules well but when it comes to applying them, they fail utterly. Whereas in RKCL grammar classroom the real life situations where the learners have to use those grammatical items, whereas in RKCL English session a lot of language is generated through activities debate, discussion, role plays, free speech and the grammar rules are supplied incidentally or the way they are shared in the real life situations.
- At the end of each grammar lesson there are three real life scenarios containing several grammatical lapses. The learners have to identify those lapses and correct them by using rules packaged with those scenarios.
Intonation & Modulation:
- As in the case of other segments, Intonation and modulations too are packaged along with the contextualized texts supplied by way of listening, reading, and fluency practice. Learners listen to various language segments in the right intonation and rhythm and practice these segments by record and compare device present in the software.
Evaluation, Assessment & Feedback:
- The students participate in pre and post assessments and receive feedback about their performance. The e- learning sessions, record students' voice in reading and free speech exercises to assess pronunciation, fluency, and voice modulation. Students also attempt tests, both written and verbal, for grammar. In the e-learning sessions students will do computer-based formative and summative assessments to check their understanding of concepts learnt. Since it's about evaluating learners spoken skill the evaluation parameters are different. A performance is based on:
- Clarity of pronunciation, stress pattern, intonation pattern.
- Active vocabulary
- Application based grammar and usage
- Pace of speech and fluency
- The rate of Mother tongue influence and Indianism
- Harsh and soft consonant sounds
- Perfect neutral vowel sound &
- Meaningful reading
