...a very important milestone in the national language policy. Though English continued to be the medium of instruction at university level due to scarcity of books and other materials in bangle, the learners at Secondary and Higher Secondary levels were left attended to grew with weakness in English. The standard of English of English Language Teaching (ELT) and learning also was going downwards very fast. There were at least six Education Commissions since independence, but none could be implemented so far. The report of the first Education Commission of Bangladesh was published in 1974 which recommended: It is not necessary to learn any language other than Bangla up to class V. From class VI to class XII, however, a modern and developed foreign language must be learnt compulsorily. For historical reasons and for the sake of reality, English will continue as a second compulsory language. ( Bangladesh Education Commission Report 1974:15 as translated in Rahman 2006) But Bangladesh can no longer be considered as a genuine ESL situation. Neither does it qualify as a purely EFL one. As Bowers (1986) in this study on ELT observes that ESL is lapsing into EFL and this is in fact, the present status of English on Bangladesh (Begum 1999:215) Though few educated professionals felt the need of English to cope with other nations and for scientific advancement, the emotional and political factors influence the subsequent governments to ignore the importance of effective......

...realistic ,socially necessary language (Barman, Sultana & Basu,2006). Therefore they became interested in the development of communicative style teaching in the early 1970s, focusing on authentic language use and classroom exchange where student engage in real communication with one another. This approach originated from the changes in the British situational language teaching approach dating from the late 1960s(Richards & Rodgers , 2001). The concept of communicative competence was first introduced by Hymes in the mid 1960s and many researchers helped to develop theories and practices of CLTA. Although they were different in many way, they all stressed the importance of communication.(language quality improvement in secondary education project, module-1,2001). Major characteristics of CLTA: CLT is usually characterized as a broad approach of teaching rather than as a teaching method with clearly defined set of classroom practices. As such it is most often defined as a list of general principles or features .one of the most recognized of these list is David Nunun’s (1991)five features of CLT: • An emphasis on learning to communicate through interaction in the target language . • The introduction of authentic texts into the learning situation • The provision of opportunities for learners to focus, not only on language but also on the learning management processes. • An enhancement of the learner’s own personal experiences as important contributing elements to......

...Advertising Project MKTG 3140-M50 Anthony McCants Jr. Section I. Toys R Us is the biggest name in retail when it comes to toys and children entertainment. Founded in 1948, Charles Lazarus at the age of twenty-five made his dream of cultivating a child-oriented company into a reality. Of course this plan did not come to mind of night, Lazarus started off with having his very own baby furniture stores, Children’s Bargain Town, in Washington D.C. to aid to the post-war baby boom era. Over time Lazarus was always searching new ways to satisfy customers and reel in new customers as well. He introduced infant products and toys for older children into his store’s growing product variety. Years later Lazarus inherited the supermarket presentation for his store, this allowed customers to fully examine and search out products on their own accord. His second store with the legendary name Toys “R” Us, what caught the eyes of consumers was the backward “R” in the name. Of course it was criticized due to is insane grammatical error; however Lazarus new he was on to something huge. The goal was to create an environment where kids could feel at home as they shop for the things they desire, to bring out the kid in everyone who stepped through the door.

...Besides the benefits from implementing the project, the cost in implementing is also important to be considered. The project would perform well only if we keep eyes on it during all procedures. The appropriate improvement would be proposed during the implementation of project in order to result in better achievement for the company. In conclusion, I would like to note that sales promotion is the element of the promotional mix that is aimed at increasing the volume of products sold via a trial or brand loyalty. The brand loyalty reflects the customer desire to buy the product or service of a given brand and depending on the level of brand loyalty that desire can be different. Sales promotion sends mixed signals with respect to building brand loyalty simply because it is hard to understand the amount of time or products needed to develop a buying habit that reflects brand loyalty. At the same time, sales promotion might be effective in building brand equity, or the existing value and association made by the consumer. Environmental friendly technologies can thus be said to have had a positive effect on motor sports and the world population at large since they have not only reduced pollution thus making the earth a safer place to live but they have also reduced the cost of living. This is in relation to soaring costs of fuel that have characterized the world markets in the recent past. (McKenna, 150-160) Top tier motor sports should therefore be encouraged to implement eco...

For this reason, the demand for learning such language has increased over the last years. In addition, many parents decided to raise their young children bilingually. Nevertheless, teaching kindergarten kids in no at all an easy job. In other words, it can very challenging for there are many factors that instructors need to take into account in order to help learning to take place. To begin with, the most difficult obstacle faced by teachers is how to keep young learners not only focused but also motivated. For many kindergarten children, sitting still for a set period of time, concentrating on a task and paying full attention to the teacher can be a struggle. This is due to the fact that their attention span is quite short. Hence, in order to overcome such obstacle, the educator should be creative enough so as to plan fun, interesting but yet effective lessons. A wide variety of methods and short activities should be included. For instance, the tasks can range from more physical activities like signing and dancing to more relaxed ones such as listening to a story. Another big issue to be considered is the fact that young pupils need to follow routines. When these ones are carefully established and taught, children know what is coming next. This is often comforting since they need stability to keep their stress......
