Abstract

The English language has a unique place in the field of education. The scope of teaching English as a second language is to make all students need to practically learn the English language. Mainly, the aim is that rural students have to acquire the skills in speaking, reading and writing in English. Majority of rural students are poor in English language. The article attempts to bring the challenges of learning English in the rural area relevant to the problems and solutions. In reality, the situation of rural students is very difficult. Although the city students have audio visual aids, language labs and all other facilities, the rural students have no such opportunities. English is generally treated as a subject rather than a language by them. The process of learning a second language is influenced by so many factors, including self-confidence, attitude, periods of language exposures, motivation, classroom conditions, family background, availability and the environment of qualified teachers. Successful learning involves not only active involvement of learners but equally important is the role of the teacher. It is necessary to select trained and dedicated teachers at the primary level. Teaching English with modern techniques and the use of technology make it easy for rural students. The government will also take the necessary steps to make India brighter by educating the rural children who are now actually weak. The availability of quality rural education would improve the nation and put people on equal platform with urban residents.
