Teaching is often perceived to be two halves; the first half is based on information whereas the other is predicted on communicational or interpersonal capacity of both the teachers and learners. It is necessary for a teacher not only to provide a good lesson but also to deliver the lesson efficiently in the classroom. Effective and productive communication skills in the field of teaching, institutional management and class engagement are very important. In a multilingual country like India, teachers have trouble determining whether to use English, how to use English with the combination of learner’s first language, how to speak in student-friendly language and even their ability to communicate effectively.

But in formal situations like work or school, one cannot be sure as to what form of communication is appropriate.
