I have been observing lot of Engineering and Management Colleges and their managements. Every one knows that the students do not have good understanding of English; they don't use right verbatim. Also they do not have the skill of communication. Many recruiting companies and agencies, after the process of campus drive, frequently complain, that the communication skills of the students is poor. In spite of all this, neither the college managements nor the students do nothing to change over the situation to their advantage. Nobody bothers about to correct the situation. Surprising.

Mr. Rao, you have rightly pointed out that Engineering and Management graduates lack the communication skills and are not polished according to the requirements of the corporate world. But I would also like to mention that now institutes are waking up to this challenge and have started conducting Personality Development and Communication skills sessions, though it is still at a very nascent stage and will take time to be realized to its full potential.

Dear Mr.Rao, you are right.The colleges are focusing on manufacturing graduates in mass, both arts & science and engineering. Anyhow they get a job and after that suffer a lot to retain it. At that point only they realise the mistake of not heeding the seniors who had suggested to become versatile. But now there is a small change in this. Colleges in small towns are doing better in this regard. Let this attitue spread.

I have been at both sides of the table, hence, know that it goes hand in hand. Preparation taken by student can be easily, powered by certification on Communication <link updated to site home> ( Search On Cite | Search On Google ) by Cambridge through British Council, which costs around 3k. Its not just the unavailability of the right information but the zeal to remain flawless, which can make a difference. Hope the students in question are reading this.

Hello All,

I totally agree with all of you here. Communication skills and the competancy in English has become basic requirment for the global business today. When we talk about communication skills this doesn't only mean speaking, but reading, writing and listening as well. We at ILSC (International Language Schjools of Canada) have courses to develop these skills and we have students coming from all over the world. We also provide on site corporate classes for these skills. I'd like to take some time to introduce our Canadian company to you and outline the corporate language training programs that we offer.

ILSC is one of the largest private language providers in Canada and we have centers in seven cities around the world: Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, San Francisco, New Delhi, Brisbane and Sydney. We have been leaders in language training in Canada for over 20 years and during this time we have graduated over 100,000 students from more than 100 countries.

Our philosophy:

At ILSC, we believe language comprehension is the key to an individual’s success in the workplace. The ability to communicate comfortably in the language of their peers empowers workers to contribute effectively to their company’s goals and advance confidently in their career.

Our mission is to provide top quality language training solutions that focus on the specific needs of our clients. We believe that every trainee has different abilities and communication priorities, and we provide personalized training schedules, curricula and objectives.

Our trainers:

Our excellent teachers are all qualified, experienced, and have a TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) certificate – an ILSC program which is taught by Canadian-certified instructors and issued through our Vancouver campus. They undergo rigorous interview screening procedures before being signed on as instructors. Instructors also take on continual pedagogical enhancement while at ILSC so that they are up to date on all the most recent methodology and techniques of the communicative approach to language learning.

The exam, dubbed the ELAS (English Language Assessment System) is completely web based and it has been developed by a reputable Montreal firm who has extensive experience providing online programs to the Canadian Government. The test will reside on and operate from their servers and meets Canadian Government security requirements.

Please find attached the PDF file that introduces the exam and gives the costing for purchases.

Hi all,

I am conducting Campus Recruitment Training for Final Year Engineering students in a few colleges in Andhra Pradesh. Unfortunately, it is a matter of too little too late. This kind of knowledge sharing should take place from first year itself. One can't create miracles in such matters.

All the Colleges and B-schools are foussing only on churning out as many students as possible and they hardly bother about the English and communication skills of their wards. In major metros, this issue is not serious but in the interiors this is a fact.

The problem is even the Faculty members in many engg colleges are just as old as the final year students. Their English knowledge and skills are equally shallow. Therefore the starting point is somewhere else. Because the students are also taught technical subjects with 90% mother tongue and 10% English !

After they come out of their Colleges, they post queries in professional sites like Cite HR and ask guidance from seniors as to how to write one simple sentence in English ! What a pity !

Dear Mr.Rao you are absolutely correct. I would even like to add not only communication, quality of education is very poor. Pass out students teaches fresh batch. I dont tell that all colleges are in the same way i comment but most of the colleges are of same type. I even agree that it is student's cup of tea to learn from books. But college is a combination of mediocre, easy learning, and poor at grasping. It is minimum responsibility of college management to take care on both Communication as well as the stuff what they are imparting.

I have been in IT industry for more than 13 years and found that new recruits that we hired always had English language as a challenge. They belonged to both fresh and experienced category. In order to help the future generation, I decided to quit my day job and today coach professionals in English. Please visit Foreign Languages, English , Personality Development , Entrepreneurship Courses at Malad, Mumbai for the curriculum. I am also looking at trainers across India who have a passion for teaching and I will be glad to have them on my panel and get them students at their convenient location.

Very true, Mr Rao.

I had an interesting experience during my last visit to India. i was with the Dean of a Management College discussing his students' needs, when three recruiters from a major organisation who had just finished interviewing the students came in to report their results. None of the students had succeeded and consequently they were not offering jobs to a single student. The reason was simply the lack of good communication skills, although academically the students had fared well. They were just not desirable enough for this particular organisation. The dean was quick to point out that he recognised the lack and the need, and that is why he had invited Ms Innes, a trainer from the UK, to help train his students.

I must point out that I had not agreed to work with his college yet; we were still discussing terms. I did not want to rain on his parade and let him create the impression that future training was in hand. The outcome was I did train two batches of their students and, although greatly enjoyed the experience and the feedback was most gratifying, have not accepted any further assignments. The terms offered were so poor as to be insulting, which makes me realise, considering what they charge their students, many are yet to realise the value, and the sheer need, of the training we provide.

Gone are the days when just academic qualifications made candidates desirable. They need other skills that are simply not being taught in the regular classrooms. And this includes social responsibility to be worthwhile citizens to make a difference in society, not just in their work places.
