Abstract: English is globally accepted as “Trade Language”. This is due to the emergence of English to its current position from its day of emergence considerably a small span of time due to the business strategy and establishment followed by its natives. English now enjoys the position of being the leading language of International discourse and the lingua franca in many regions and professional contexts such as Science, Navigation, Law etc. It has been used as a second language or official language in almost sixty sovereign nations. Of them India is one among the fast growing and technologically self-satisfied globally admired nation. Several nations including the developed have acknowledged the IQ of Indian individuals and their contribution towards the global development. But it is also a fact that many of the Indian students due to their lack in Communication skills has left themselves to stay on meagre grounds. The intellect and knowledge acquired in them has been made to stagnate due to the absence of the channel “Communication”. It is due to our education system that has its base on testing memory skills rather to check on and develop latent skills. This practice has led to the reports filed by organizations on which the denial of employment is due to the lack in not of technical criteria but of the soft skills. These situations have now become a common criterion in several branches, especially in Engineering. Thus focus should be given on both the academic as well as communicative areas.
