Abstract: This study aims to investigate the use of Eclectic approach in teaching English for engineering students and to know how it is useful in improving their communication skills. Therefore, it uses the Eclectic approach in improving a student’s language skills. If a teacher follows the Eclectic approach, it will be useful to students to improve their communication skills. Eclectic approach is a methodology that makes use of the varied language learning approaches instead of confine to one approach. It is a skilled based approach as the teacher can base his method or approach on the basis of the learner’s age, knowledge and aims and objectives of the lesson. This study was carried out in two groups-controlled and experimental groups. Each group consisted of sixty students of first year B.Tech with rural background. So this case-study is useful to English teachers to follow this approach in their language teaching.
