A person needs to
communicate with his society so any language should be used that is
English language as a global language. Language teachers are facing
professional decisions to ensure effective language teaching and rely to
a great extent on learner centeredness, learning centeredness and
communicative language teaching. This paper addresses the issue of
college students' preferences for the methodology of learning English
language and the importance of proficiency that is placed on various
language skills such as speaking and listening for communication.
Research aimed at gathering data from students in the college of
engineering and making informed decisions to improve the quality of
language teaching and learning. This study strives to make changes in
learning English among engineering students and develop their
communicative language with peer groups. The implications of this
research for language teachers is to find innovative ways of motivating
learners to lifelong learning, negotiating with learners on their
priorities for various activities in class, and incorporating activities
that learners prefer for their betterment in second learning.
