Abstract

Our view of teaching the English language is essentially socio-constructivist. In India, the classrooms are generally heterogeneous. It has been a challenging experience for the teachers of the English language to tackle the problems in the heterogeneous classrooms. If we aspire to profit from heterogeneous groups; we need to believe that diversity is not a snag. It is an opportunity to know various perceptions and to enrich teaching. English teachers should be aware of the different interests and needs of the students to organize and to arrange activities accordingly. Humor can help teachers initiate a more relaxed learning environment which significantly lowers fear factor and allows quality learning to take place.
