English has gained the status of an international language, with its intercontinental proliferation. In the present context of teaching English to engineering students it was observed that students have basic communication skills. However, these skills are inadequate to meet the changing educational trends. To get an edge over the competitors, students are left with hardly any choice but to add values to their communication skills to exhibit their true potential. But the importance to these communication skills at times are downplayed in engineering programmes in favour of an over emphasis on the technical skills.
