In Content Based Instruction, the material for study is utilized for language instructional purpose. The paper presents an overview of language teaching through pedagogic model of Content Based Instruction (CBI) to secondary level students.

This paper highlights how CBI along with Audio-Lingual method, Direct Method and Counselling Language Learning can promote secondary level students’ language acquisition. The study addresses the current barriers that are found in language learning among the learning community that is quite prevalent in our educational system. The study infers that the students would perform better when they get introduced to the CBI compared to that of the conventional mode of learning. Content Based Instruction highlights on the mechanism of speech and proper structural format of L2 in the usage of spoken English among the English language users at the Secondary level in school. This presentation reviews how the CBI can improve the speech skill sets in Second language learners. Teachers and language practitioners involved in education will find this piece of writing useful. The article verifies the different methodologies of Teaching in English. It presents an amalgamation of certain teaching methods such as, Audio-lingual method and Direct method, which increases the efficacy in the use of Second Language Learning (SLL) among the Secondary School students.

A structured content and instruction will contribute a great learning experience. The study ensures the Second Language (L2) users develop both in their communicative competence also, in their language aptitudes through CBI.
