I dedicate this work to Dr.P.Rajeshwar Reddy, Secretary/Correspondent
of Anurag Engineering College and Secretary of Consortium of Engineering
Colleges Managements, A.P. He has given me an opportunity to work in this
esteemed institute, when I was down and out and needed this job desperately.
To be frank, I was not even in the competition, when many senior faculty
members have attended the interview along with me on 13th May 2007. He
has spotted some potentiality within me and created a post to take me in. That
had given me a lot of confidence and went on to receive my M.Phil degree,
became the youngest Anuragian to assume an administration office by
becoming the Training and Placement Officer. This particular work is
dedicated to him to convey him that I have fully utilized the opportunity he
had given me and I have made my own contribution in making this institute
an incubation centre for research and development.

"Speech is Silver and Silence is gold", which is an obsolete idea today, because these
are the days where one has to express ones ideas, thoughts,abilties very clearly . When
it comes to the professional students, No one needs to tell about the importance of the
communication skills for them.
Engineering students from the rural backgrounds are not inferior to the students from
metro cities in any area except in the Communication Skills. I strongly believe that they
can pick up these essential skills with some effort. I call this book as a kick-starter for
the students, who want to be good speakers or a writers. If a student uses a prewritten
speech in this book and speks on the dais, it will help in a great deal to his/her confidence.
With that confidence he/she can prepare a script on his/her own and can make wonderful
speech. So is the case with the pre-written letters given in this book
In order to create an English speaking Environment, we have made a rule that all the
students and faculty should communicate exclusively in English in the college Premises.
I am glad that Sudheer has given the most frequenty used expressions in the classes/labs
in the second chapter of the book. The students and faculty , can reproduce those
expressions accordingly.
We know how important is the Compering/anchoring's role in making an event successful.
This is the first time I have come across a book that tells you how to do the anchoring in
the events. I congratulate Mr.Sudheer Kumar.N, for his efforts. I have spotted the talent
within him, I have made him the Training and Placement Officer. I wish him all the
success in his career as an author, placement officer and as well as a lecturer.

Author's Message
Dear Students,
Being a lecturer in English Department is a challenging job because it is the only department that is
expected to show the results of its work immediately. For instance, if a student joins in the I B.Tech in
the month of September and commits a grammatical error in the same month, everyone points their
finger at the English Department. All the subjects in the professional courses have practical applications.
Students learn computer languages like "C", "C++" etc and No one bothers how many of you are able to
do the live projects on your own even in the IV B.Tech using these languages. It is not to find fault with
anybody but at the level of Engineering, Students are expected to put that extra effort to apply whatever
they learn in the theory classes into practice otherwise all the effort that is put in by your parents, college
management, faculty, government and by yourself by coming to college every day just goes in vain. If
you can apply whatever we teach in the English classes, you can write or speak any kind of an expression
in English. But some of you are failing to use the right expressions at the right time and you are being
mocked at I know you feel ashamed of this weakness. Let us not expose our weakness to the society.
Hence this book is an effort to uphold your pride. You need some time to improve your English but at the
same time we can not avoid using English in our day to day life or at least in the college, where all the
communication is supposed to happen in English. That is why I have written this book to help you out in
G writing letters for various needs to various people of various ranks
G Being an EMCEE/ compre (anchor) for the college day celebrations or any other function or seminars.
G Knowing the Tips and Techniques to improve your English Language Communication Skills
G To learn the day to day expressions that are used by the Native speakers of English
G Matering the Clasified Vocabulary
G In learning the Essential Vocabulary
G proposing vote of thanks and many more
This book will help them in finding out the expressions that you need in different situation as mentioned
above. In this book, I have tried my best to cover all the situations that a student/faculty of comes across
every day.
The other work I have done previously was "text-analysis as a language learning strategy" submitted as
the dissertation for the fulfillment of my M.Phil Degree. I have worked so hard to write the dissertation
and proposed many new ideas in Teaching English in that work. Unfortunately, it could not be useful for
anybody except for fetching me an M.Phil degree. Hence, I have decided to do some work that will be
useful for the students. If any one of you derives benefit out of this book, it gives me an immense
pleasure and satisfaction for me.

Compre (anchoring)
Compre (anchor) plays a vital role in making an event successful. An anchor of the
event can radiate energy by being lively, by using the right tone and modulation, by using
impressive expressions, by using the right body language, by dressing sensibly etc. Here are
some tips given for the anchors:
Tips for the Anchors:
1. Some Anchors tend to give importance to accent and fluency rather than clarity. An anchor
should try to speak loudly and clearly rather than striving to use American accent. Many
people think that fluency is speaking more number of words per minute, which is completely
wrong. Fluency means speaking without having breaks. Speak at a reasonable pace quite
clearly. Your tongue should touch the hard palate of your mouth strong enough for your
voice to sound clearly to the audience.
"Brit or American, flaunt that accent only if you know how to do it correctly, else you could
just end up making a fool of yourself"
-an excerpt from an article on fake accent in Deccan chronicle on 1st September 2010
2. An anchor of the event must consider himself as the representative of the college /organization
that is organizing that particular event. You need not hesitate to use the word "I" to start the
3. Minimizing the use of paper to do the anchoring helps you in maintaining eye contact with
the audience.
4. Remember that the lectern on the dais is not to hide yourself behind it.
5. Wear a smile on your face, which acts as an antidote to your nervousness and makes your
tone impressive.
Welcoming the guests on to the dais
Before inviting the guests on to the dais, it is essential to brief the gathering about the essence of
the event and about your institute. I have here given a sample introduction:
"Good Afternoon! I am Srinivas.N of IV B.Tech EEE welcome you all to the STANZA-2k11. Anurag
Engineering College became a renowned place of learning over the last ten years, as it has the pride of
producing several luminaries in different disciplines. If you take a quick look around you, I am sure you
will agree that our institute has come a long way in the last few years. Dr P.Rajeswara Reddy had
envisaged the bright future of this college ten years back and all his dreams have come true today. It
was not a cakewalk. The diligent efforts of the management, various principals, and all the employees
have seen a remarkable spurt in making the college as the most preferred one in this region. We feel
proud to be the students of Anurag Engineering College because we are provided with the state-of-the-
art Infrastructure, well qualified faculty, a perfect atmosphere for academic pursuit. The pristine
surroundings of our college stage the most conducive atmosphere reminding us the ancient gurkulas
which were located in this kind of an atmosphere. The annual day of our college is really a moment that
we should enjoy and savor. Although we have miles to go, we need to celebrate each and every mile
stone in order to go ahead with added enthusiasm."

After the brief introduction, the anchors should invite guests on to the dais. While inviting the guests on
to the dais, The Anchors should avoid using the same expression to invite all the guests on to the dais.
He/she has to use different expressions to invite different guests otherwise the language of the anchor
appears monotonous thus He/she fails to be impressive. Here are different phrases to invite the guests
on to the dais:
1. Before you invite the guests on to the dais, ensure that you have got the list of all the guests
to welcome.
2. Before starting the proceedings, check with the chief Coordinator or organizers, whether
there are any additions or deletions in the list of the guests given to you.
3. Double check that the remarks you are going to make about your guests are factually correct.
4. Make sure that you pronounce their names correctly.
Expressions to invite the Guests on to the dais:
G I consider it a great honour to welcome Mr./Ms/Sri/Smt/Dr./Prof _______________ on to
the dais
G may I Invite the chief guest Mr./Ms/Sri/Smt/Dr./Prof __________________ on to the dais
G The next dignitary to honour us with his/her presence is. Mr./Ms/Sri/Smt/Dr./Prof __________
G I am glad to invite Mr./Ms/Sri/Smt/Dr./Prof_______________________ On to the dais
G It will now be the turn of _____________________ to come on to the dais
G I request Mr./Ms/Sri/Smt/Dr./Prof_________________________ to grace the dais
G Next, we look forward for the presence of ___________________ on the dais.
G It is my privilege to invite Mr./Ms/Sri/Smt/Dr./Prof ____________________ on to the dais.
G With equal pleasure invite______________ on to the dais.
In some of the events, the role of the anchor is confined only to invite the guests on to the
dais and the later proceedings are looked after by the president of the meeting. In that case after
inviting the guests, use the following phrases and leave the stage:
G Now, I request _______________________ (president) to preside over the meeting.
G Now over to Mr./Ms____________________
Expressions to Honour the guests:
G Now the dignitaries on the dais will be garlanded and offered bouquets.
G I request Ms. Veena of I B.Tech to honour the chief guest with a bouquet.
Welcome speech
After inviting the guests on to the dais and honoring them with bouquets, it is our tradition
to have a welcome address. Anchor may invite someone representing the institute to welcome
the guests and all the invitees one by one. A sample welcome address is given below.
The essential elements to cover in your welcome speech are:
G to specifically acknowledge any important guests
G to generally welcome all the guests, stating the name of the event and host and thank them for

G to give a brief introduction of the host
G to give a brief introduction of the occasion
G to give any especial welcomes ie.,to the important guests
G to introduce the next speaker if appropriate
Sample welcome speech:
"I am really privileged to have the pleasant task of welcoming the distinguished gathering
for the college annual day celebrations STANZA-2k11. On behalf of the Anurag Engineering
College and on my own behalf, I warmly and respectfully welcome the Chief Guest, Hon'ble
Vice chancellor of JNTUH Prof D.N.Reddy. We are highly honoured that our Hon'ble Vice
chancellor is amongst us today. We are indeed grateful to the VC for graciously and readily
accepting our invitation. We are eagerly looking forward to his address.
Let me extend my thanks to Mr. Venepally chander Rao, MLA, Kodad, who has always
been with us. His presence is always a moral boost for us. I thank him for making his presence
despite his busy schedule.
A warm word of welcome to Dr.P Rajeswara Reddy, secretary/correspondent of our
college, we are waiting with full of ebullience to listen to your motivational words.
A hearty welcome to our Principal, Dr Akash N Patwari. He has an indomitable spirit
to maintain the discipline. His personal academic achievements are a source of motivation for
I am pleased to invite all the committed teaching and non teaching staff of Anurag
Engineering College.
My word of welcome goes next to all the invitees, the parents and the vibrant students of
Anurag Engineering College."I thank you all for attending .i look forward to wonderful events
to follow. Thank you"
Expressions to request the guest to address the gathering:
G Ladies and Gentlemen, we rarely get this kind of an opportunity to listen to the words of
great personality Mr./Ms/Sri/Smt/Dr./Prof______________________, So let us have the
privilege of listening to the message of Mr./Ms/Sri/Smt/Dr./Prof____________________
G I Invite Mr./Ms/Sri/Smt/Dr./Prof____________ to address the gathering
G Now, let us have the pleasure of listening to the opening remarks of the Honourable principal.
After the Speech

During the prize distribution:
G I request the chief guest _______________ to give away the prizes to the winners of literary
G Thank you sir/madam for taking the trouble of giving away so many prizes. I am sure all the
winners felt proud of receiving the prizes from your hands.
While announcing the names of the prize winners, the compre has to maintain the same
kind of energy to invite all the winners in different categories. There is nothing like prestigious
events and non prestigious events. The person winning the Essay writing competition should
equally be treated as the one who wins the 100meters sprint as both of them have put in a lot of
effort, one physically and the other mentally.
Some useful phrases during prize distribution
G The winner/runner of 400meters running is..
G The best student award for the academic year 2010-11 goes to________________
G Ladies and gentlemen put your hands together to invite winner of Jam competition Mr./Ms----------
G I request the prize winners to come closer to the dais to so that we don't squander the valuable time.
Cultural Activities:
Everyone may not agree with me but the home truth is that people wish that the cultural
activities start as early as possible. The person who does the anchoring for the cultural activities
can afford to a bit informal than the previous events. At this juncture, completely do away with
the prewritten scripts. All you need to remember is the name of the performer and what he/she
going to perform.
Some phrases:
G Now we are going to have a very flamboyant and raucous event
G Now, we are going to have a rocking performance by Mr. Syam of III B.Tech
G Let's give a big round of applause to Ms Vandana of IV B.Tech, who is going to sing a
melodious song for us.
G That was a splendid performance... Mr. Syam
G It was an incredible dancing performance by Ms Meena
G Wow... what an amazing performance
G It was a class act.
As we normally do not use any negative description in the college function as does by in
the reality shows on Telugu TV channels, any of the following phrases could be used based on
the suitability
G Gorgeous
G Alluring
G Attractive
G Appealing
G Sweet
G Good-looking
G Charming
G Glamorous
G Beautiful
G Eye-catching
G Smart

Dealing with the problematic crowd:
Many people in spite of having desire to do the anchoring, hesitate to do the anchoring keeping the
problematic crowd in mind. I have got the opportunity to do the anchoring in the final year (in 2005)
of my post graduation for the College Annual day celebrations of Nagarjuna University College. Dr
P.Raja Sekhar, the then HOD of English Department kept the responsibility of doing the anchoring
and choosing the other two anchors to accompany me. It was not that there weren't any one who could
do better but everyone was afraid of the crowd in the university. At the university level, we can not
expect the students to be disciplined as the students of corporate colleges. So, I have shouldered the
responsibility of doing the anchoring because I was at the verge of finishing my education and I
thought I would not be getting the opportunity as such any more.
On that day, the atmosphere was electrifying with Vice chancellor, chief guests, Executive members
of the university and students over two thousand .From the dais, the crowd was appearing as if it was
a huge ocean to me. My junior was first to start the proceedings, as expected a part of the crowd
started giving slogans "anchor maralianchor marali" . Situation was not dissimilar when the turn
of my other classmate did the anchoring. Then I have decided not to allow the problematic crowd to
dictate terms to me. First thing I did was to keep my voice as loud as possible and I stopped reading
from the prewritten script. I tried to make spontaneous remarks. Soon I could gain control over the
audience and to my surprise , Prof.Hara Gopal Reddy, Principal of University College and the Present
vice chancellor of Nagarjuna University stood right behind me and said " Those two were faltering ,
you alone continue till the end" , which gave me a lot of confidence and I continued till the end.
Vote of Thanks:
Ladies and gentlemen
It is a great honor and privilege to be called upon to propose a Vote of Thanks. I thank Prof D.N.Reddy,

Twenty days Challenge to enhance your English proficiency:
The moment you see this heading your eyes would have lit up. It might have sounded like the book
30 days to improve your English. I do not mean to say that you can master LSRW skills in twenty days but
there will be a significant difference in your proficiency of English, if you follow the below mentioned
guide lines. You might feel that "it is easier said than done". I am also a student of Telugu medium in a small
town. I have studied in Chintakrindhi Kankaiah High school, Mangalagiri. But I have practiced the following
guidelines and it has brought about a dramatic improvement in my proficiency in English language and I
recommend anyone who wishes to improve their English Language communication skills, to follow the
guidelines mentioned below:
1. Students should buy the book, ENGLISH CONVERSATION PRACTICE, by Grant Taylor, Mc Graw
Hill publishers. They have to read the phrases and expressions aloud. Your ears should listen to you
uttering the phrases There is a book called " Learn Spoken English in half the time" written by Lynn
Lund Quist, the whole essence of the book is that anybody who wants learn any new language, She/he
has to take some text of that language and he/she has to read it aloud. Our ears should listen to our voice.
Then the listening mechanism in the brain gives a positive signal to speaking mechanism that this man
has spoken this particular sentence so many times and he/she can speak it without hesitation. The best
example I can give you here is, No matter whatever the background of the student, he/she does not
hesitate say "May I come in sir". But the same student hesitates to say "Nice to meet you". The number
of words is same. But the only difference is that his/her ears have heard him/her speaking the phrase
"May I come in sir many times. This is not a new theory for us; small Brahmin kids can say Vedas
effortlessly by using this technique only. Students should use this ENGLISH CONVERSATION
PRACTICE, by Grant Taylor so that they can improve their English conversation. There is no other
book available in the market that can match this book. It costs 120 rupees. (30 minutes per day)
2. Every day, each student has to translate an article in Telugu news paper into English. Let it be a small
article, Then the students' minds start probing, "How to tell this expression in English?". "What word to
be used for this Telugu word in English, for example a student has come to me asked me what is to be
called ~ \T (when a building collapses, whatever the material remaining after the collapse)" in English.
I just told him that it is called debris. Likewise we can improve your Vocabulary, syntax and writing
skills. So, How to find that word that is probing you to find the meaning? Many people do not realize the
importance of Telugu to English dictionary. Here the Telugu to English Dictionary will definitely help
you in finding out the right word. Telugu to English dictionary is published by Oxford University Press,
I recommend that Dictionary, rather that Sankarnarayana's or CP Brown's dictionaries. As the in these
dictionaries the Telugu language that is used is the language of 19th century. Now most of these words
are not at all in use.(10 minutes a day)
3. If reading is the input, writing is the output. For speaking listening is very important. As I have mentioned
in the first point, the student should listen to his/her own voice. Apart from that, we have to ensure that
they listen to English news channels. . Our brains are programmed in such a way that we remember
songs 20 times more that sentences. Some songs by Boy zone or Britney spears are very good and if we
listen to them we quite regularly, we can easily memorize them. (10 minutes a day)
4. Many People recommend you to watch English movies to improve your English. I agree with them but
with a small correction. Instead of watching the whole movie passively. Watch a particular scene of the
movie, repeatedly. This is what is called active listening. A lot of research had been done and it has been
Readymade Speeches, Expressions and Letters for the Students
N.Sudheer Kumar, Lecturer in English,
Anurag Engineering College, Kodad.
Page 13
concluded that this particular method will definitely help the listener to internalize the language. You
need not worry about memorizing the dialogues; just watch a particular scene in that particular movie
again and again. Your subconscious mind takes care of storing the language and vocabulary in your
minds. (10 minutes a day)
5. I do not subscribe to the view that one should speak English, without worrying about the mistakes that
they would commit. It is can only help a person to overcome his/her shyness to speak English but if a
person keeps on speaking English with so many Grammatical errors in his speech, slowly he/she gets
used to speaking English with the same grammatical errors. I have been observing a professor of English
in a reputed institute for the last ten years; He speaks English very fluently but with so many grammatical
errors. I have not seen even a small improvement in his proficiency of English. Nobody dares to correct
him also. People talk about his lack of proficiency behind his back only.( even I have not). So learn the
basic grammar at least Tenses. You should learn correct English and you should try to speak correct
English as much as possible. But remember, nobody or nothing is perfect in the world. You should strive
for excellence not for perfection. (30 minutes a day)
6. Read an English Newspaper daily. The Hans of India is the news paper that I recommend the students to
read for these reason: using the right word in the right context, touching upon the issues that are relavant
to the state and our region, and more importantantly, it has got a student offer where the students just
have to pay 200 rupees for for six months subscription. Just like Active Listening, we need to do active
reading with the news paper. Instead of reading the whole paper passively, try to identify the unfamiliar
words in an article that you find it to be interesting, observe the collocations, tone of the article and the
sentence structure etc. (30 minutes a day)
Allocate 2 hours a day like this for 20 days and find the difference within you. Our day of 24 hours is divided
into three equal parts of 8 hours each. First eight hours for work, second eight hours are for rest and the
remaning eight hours are for entertainment. You can keep these two hours of time in a day under the
entertainment part as all you are going to do is to read newspapers, listening to music, writing an article etc.
You do not need to put yourself understress to do all these things, infact, you can use these things as the
stress busters, listening to the music for example. If you can find considerable difference within 2 days. If
you continue to do not for one or two years you with do wonders.
Class Room Expressions for the Teachers and the Students
Teachers have to be good communicators in English. Every teacher should always bear in their mind
that the students observe and catch the language of the teachers hence the teachers must use right expressions
In English. Students irrespective of their back grounds, use the expression "may I come in sir/madam" so
easily for the obvious reason is that the expression has been used for a long time by them. All the expressions
given in this chapter are also as easy as the expression "May I come in sir?" But this small talk has to be
internalized by the teachers and students and should be able to speak these expressions as effortlessly as
"May I come in sir/madam". This small talk helps a lot in boosting the confidence of the students, which
would pave the way for them to speak some longer sentences. There are two types of English:
G Conversational English
G Subjective English
Some students are proficient in conversational English and some in subjective English. Conversational
English is to speak some small expressions in English fluently like requesting, taking permissions, seeking
information and so on. A person is considered to have subjective English if he/she can speak or write on
intellectual topics. Some students are good at both; some students are good at conversational English and

some are good at subjective English. Obviously, speaking subjective English is much more difficult than
conversational English; however, people who speak conversational English make a very good first
impression. These people use very small expressions like "Hi", "How is the day so far...", "has a nice
day..." with a good accent thereby making the other people feel that he/she is very good at English but if
you want them speak on any of the intellectual topic, their true colors would be revealed. However one
has to take a leaf out of their book. They are creating very good first impression, which is the best
impression. If you go to an interview and make this good first impression to get the job, what else you
need? So, use every opportunity to use the conversational English and it has to be started in the class
room. So let us see different expressions to be used in the classroom.

Sample speeches:
Welcome speech on the inauguration of the technical paper presentation:
Good morning one and all, it gives me an immense pleasure to inaugurate the Anurag Vista-2k10, a
national level technical paper presentation and technical Quiz. I am happy to welcome Patron of
Anurag Vista, Dr.P.Rajeswara Reddy garu, Principal, Dr Akash N Patwari, Honourable members of
the Advisory committee and organizing committee, faculty and participants.
Today, Anurag Engineering College is proud to host the minds and the master minds from all over the
country. Events like national level paper presentations are part and parcel of healthy academic
environment. So, first of all, give a big round of applause to the college management.
We live in an age of progress. Those days of mugging up the subject and reproducing in the exams
have gone and if any one of the students still does the same, will stay behind and will recede. Those
students who want to make their future journey smooth and impressive must develop the ability to do
research to propose new ideas and theories. Students should participate in these kinds of events and
they should send some of their papers to the national and the international journals. It would definitely
help you to enhance the creativity.
Ladies and gentlemen, you all know the importance of "presentation" .the world is their oyster for the
students, who have good presentation skills. Here we should not forget that the people with good
presentation skills are not born but they are made. One can master the presentation skills only by
making presentations repeatedly. Even if a student makes presentations at the college level, it would
definitely help him/her in developing presentation skills. If a student can present at the national level
events like Anurag vista, it would do a world of good to his/her self confidence. Therefore, each and
every participant is winner of priceless self confidence.
Sharing our ideas with others is the best way of creating more ideas. So let us share and discuss our
ideas. An idea can change our life but the ideas of the technocrats can change the course of the world.
So, get ready to quench your thirst for technical knowledge.

Speech about the departmental Association
Dignitaries on the dais, Heads of the departments, faculty and my dear friends, I am Ramya sree of
III B.Tech ECE. Today I would like to tell a few words about the departmental Association of ECE
department ECE on the occasion of its first anniversary. The departmental association of ECE has
been established in the year 2009. The association plays a significant role as an important adjunct to
course work since it sponsors lectures by eminent engineers, debates, competitions, general knowledge
quiz, essay competitions and various programmes and, in general, stimulate interest in the diverse
spheres of a student's life. The association strives for synchronization between academic learning
and recent development in Industry and thereby to provide opportunity for all round development of
This association is run by the students and for the students to achieve the above objectives. The
faculty advisors are appointed by the department to advice students regarding the various activities
conducted by E-Spice. This helps students to learn the managerial skills also. The association has
been well established and has been working very actively since the inception and I wish the association
continues to flourish and to achieve its objectives. Thank you very much.
Inauguration of a guest lecture: (by a student)
Honourable Guest, faculty and my dear friends,
I would like to welcome you all for the second guest lecture in this semester. My dear friends, as you
all know, our Secretary/ correspondent and our Principal, wants to have a vibrant academic atmosphere
in the college by conducting various seminars, paper presentations, group discussions and guest
lectures. Guest lectures are part and parcel of having such vibrant academic atmosphere.
It is indeed a remarkable day in the history of our department as we have Mr. Ravi Kumar, who is
going to give his guest lecture on "Robotics". We have heard a lot about him. Mr. Ravi Kumar,
besides his long list of qualifications of expertise, has vast academic experience. He has authored
many books and many of his articles have been published in national and international journals.
Many of his students are very well placed in many government and non government organizations.
I must thank our head of the department for arranging this guest lecture by such a renowned
In today's environment, hoarding knowledge ultimately erodes your power. If you know something
very important, the way to get power is by actually sharing it. At Anurag, emphasis is given on not
only making you academically brilliant, but to make true leaders and team players, thus preparing
you for the real life corporate world. This is done by inviting people from industries and top institutions
to provide valuable information to our students.
We Invite Eminent personalities form various Industries and Institutions to lend valuable Information
from their Experiences to our students. Guest Lecture is a way of enriching our students with the
latest updates of the Industries and Technicalities. The Students are bestowed with knowledge about
Industry needs, latest technical updates, Avenues for Higher studies etc.
These kinds of guest lectures would certainly help us to dwell deep into the subject rather than
having a superficial understanding of the subject. I suggest you all to be interactive through out the
seminar rather than being passive listeners. The more interest you show the more benefit you gain

from this lecture .I don't want to take much time as I know that you are eagerly waiting to listen to his
lecture. Before I conclude, I once again thank the management, the principal and the Head of the
department for setting up a right platform for us to brain storm on this topic
Thank you.
Speech on improving English
Good afternoon everybody, I am Aathira Vijayan of II B.Tech IT (A) section, I am glad to say today
a few words on the subject which is of vital importance to us,
English is now the international language .So it is very important to learn English well. We should
study English in the correct way, so that we can make the most of the time we spend learning
English. Discovering ways to improve their English is a problem which baffles many students.
There are three ways to improve English
First of all, we have to learn many English words and study English grammar in great detail. Reading
is the best way to increase vocabularies and learn how to avoid making grammar errors. If we read
magazines written in English, regular reading will make it easier for us to remember the many new
words we come across. Having a dictionary is just like having a teacher close at hand. We need to
use a dictionary to look up those words that we don't know. It makes reading a very enjoyable
Secondly, besides learning to read English, we must learn to understand spoken English, and practice
speaking. Try listen to radio stations, if at first you don't understand, keep listening and maintain a
regular habit of listening to radio stations. Repeat after the broadcast and learn how to pronounce
correctly and frequently.
Thirdly, we should try to talk with people who will give you conversation practice. Don't be afraid to
speak, afraid to be laughed at. If we never learn to take risks to open mouths, it will be impossible to
improve speaking skills. There is no reason to be ashamed of speaking poor English. If we can learn
from our mistakes, failure can become part of our success. In fact, the secret of success may come
from failure.
In conclusion, there is no short cut to learning English. Persistence is the major secrets of success. If
you want use English as your native language, don't ever give up trying to achieve your goal. If we
are prepared to work hard at it, we will be successful in the end
Independence Day celebrations
Good Morning Everybody,
At this congregation to celebrate the 64th Independence Day, I should only say that on this day it is
incumbent on us to remember our national leaders who have made sacrifices for getting independence
for the country.
We all should be proud to be born in this country. Our country is a perfect example of "unity in
diversity". India is the largest democracy in the world. Our economy is developing in leaps and
bounds. There are so many things we should feel proud of however; there are some problems posing
a serious threat to the nation's development. The gap between the rich and poor has always been
formidable and has only made the poor people more frustrated. Terrorists want to create unrest in the
country. Corruption is obstructing the fruits of development reaching the poor people.
My dear friends! Now is the time to show our courage, now is the time to display our unity, and now
is the time to fight against the poverty. We, the youngsters should shoulder the responsibility of
transforming India from developed country from being developed country.
If you can not fight against corruption, try to stay away from it. If you can't eradicate poverty in the

Page 20
country, at least eradicate poverty at your home. If you can't imbibe values in the society, at least
inculcate them within you.
It is also time for us to do away from the blaming the society and the government. John F Kennedy
said. "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can for the country". We can contribute
to the development of our country by doing our work sincerely. On this auspicious day I declare that
I practice what I have preached and I hope you all do the same.
Thank you very much.
Senior student's suggestion for the I B.Tech students during the orientation programme.
Good Afternoon Everybody. Today, I would like to extend a warm welcome to the I B.Tech students.
Let me first congratulate you all for choosing the best college in the region. To achieve your goals or
expectations, you need to do some small things right, they are small things but big things happen
when you do the small things right.
The first thing that I want you to do is to be regular to the college. You should not miss any classes
or labs. Students tend to think that they need only 75% of attendance to attend the examinations yes,
it is enough to attend the exams but not enough to become merit student. You should not miss any
classes or labs.
The next thing I suggest you is to do away with the procrastination or postponing. So many surveys
have proved that it is the biggest enemy to many students. Especially you the I B.Tech students have
to fight against this enemy. You can be a bit lethargic as you have been idle for almost for 6 months.
You have to finish studying the topics that have been taught in the classes on the same day itself as
soon as you go home. For that you need to bury yourself in books for at least four hours a day.
Learning the core subject inside out is so important but there is one more important thing that every
student should learn almost parallel with your core subject is " English language" you should spend
at least one hour a day to learn English. Of course, you have to communicate only in English in the
college campus. You should not feel shy to speak English. Do not think that if I make mistakes while
speaking in English, people would make fun out of me. That won't happen in Anurag. Everybody
will appreciate you speaking in English. No body minds if it is a broken English or Spoken English
I asked you to spend four hours for studying core subjects and one hour for learning English language,
which means that you need to spend at five hours with your studies. You may think that it is not
possible. I can confidently say that it is possible provided that you should avoid the timewasters. The
time waster number one is your mobile phone. We do not allow the students to carry their mobile
phones into college campus rather than we forcing you, you should have a self control over using
phone. For all the parents who are here, I would like to stress that if you want your son or daughter
to prosper in their career, you should not give him a mobile phone. The time waster number two is
the television. You should stop gluing to the television in order work on some productive work
Anurag Engineering College has been the most preferred college in the region. You might not have
seen the advertisement of Anurag in the local cable TV or you might not have found big hoardings of
Anurag. But we are the most preferred college just because of the standards we maintain in providing
the quality education to the budding professionals. I hope you all work hard to keep the flag of
Anurag to fly high. Thank you.

Readymade letters for different occasions
Communication in the professional organizations happens mostly in written. Students, the moment they enter
into a professional institute, they are asked to put their pen on paper for each and every request, complaint or
any for any other reason. They are perplexed by this and mistook it as the Red Tapism. Something given in
writing has some advantages:
G There is a lesser chance for the message to be misunderstood.
G It can be used for the purpose of maintaining a record.
G Authorities take complaint in written more seriously than the oral one.
No one can evade this as long as he/she is in the professional organization as a student o r an employee. The
audience for these letters is the higher officials. It is not a good practice to write letters to the higher officials
with so many spelling and grammatical errors. Although making mistakes is part and parcel of learning, making
some blunders and taking them to the higher officials will not help you in fulfilling the purpose of your work.
In this chapter, I have given ready-to-use letters for needs that a student comes across everyday. The format and
the expressions used in the letter may look new to you but still use them without any hesitation because they
are written in the format that is used internationally. Avoid using the Indian English as much as possible
because you are going to work in multinational companies.
When I attended the interview of BPO of GE (General Electronics) the HR, Mr. Sandeep commented remarked
that I had Mother Tongue Influence. I was clue less at that time what was mother tongue influence was.
Mother tongue influence is not just about pronunciation but also about using the Standard English expressions.
We should not translate the expressions in Indian Languages into English Just like Chiranjeevi does in the
movie Shankar Dada MBBS. The classic example of the mother tongue influence is "What is your good
name?" which is a word to word translation of the Hindi expression "aap ka shubh naam kya hai?. The native
Englishmen would be confused and he might say, "I don't have good name and bad name, I have only one
name. I had a similar experience when an international seminar was held at Nagarjuna University in the year
2004. I was serving food to Prof. Gordon Tucker, renowned linguist; He asked me what was that curry. I said
it was "ladies finger", He said "I am not a cannibal to eat ladies fingers'. He was just kidding after all he was a
linguist. He knew it was an Indian expression to "okra" but he just wanted me to realize that it was not Standard
English expression. The both expressions that I have shared above had a lot of influence over me and I want my
students to be aware of the mother tongue influence.
Let us see what are the Indian expressions we use and why they have to be avoided.

Guidelines for writing good Professional letters:
1. Before you begin writing a business letter, define clearly your purpose in writing. Make sure that you have
a clear idea of:
G The events that have led to your writing the letter
G Your maximum aims (the most you can hope to achieve)
G Your realistic aims (what you expect to achieve)
G The information you need to explain in the letter
G The argument you need to deploy
2. If you are writing to someone whose name and title you do not know, use the greeting Dear Sir or madam,
and the ending yours faithfully, signing yourself with your initials and surname.
3. If you are writing to a named person, address them as Dear Mr./Mrs./Miss/Ms____, and end Yours Sincerely,
followed by your first name and surname.
4. Your letter should sound natural. Your personality should never be sacrificed for the sake of pedantic style
or flowery language. Write your letters as if you are talking to the persons concerned face to face. Imagine
for a moment that you are in the same room with them. What would you tell them? Write your letters in the
same pattern of language.

Sub: Apology for resorting to malpractice
Dear Sir/madam,
I, Ravan Kumar.V, would like to sincerely apologize for resorting to malpractice during my MI exam held on 11.06.2010.

hereby assure that I will not commit such mistakes in the future.
I hope you would consider my case on human grounds and reprieve me off the punishment.
Thank You

Sub: Complaint-eve teasing- auto driver-reg.
Dear Sir,
I am writing this letter to inform you about the harassment I am being subjected to by an auto driver. I am doing my
B.Tech in KL University .I travel by the college bus and I alight from the bus at the Hanuman temple everyday. An auto
driver named Dussaasan Rao has been following me and making some obscene remarks for last two weeks. I have just
ignored his remarks as if I have not listened to them. But the thug has taken my silence for granted and he has increased
the intensity of his harassment. He has obstructed on my way to home and threatened to kill me unless I go out with him
The shop vendors of the area have witnessed all this and unable to open their mouth because they were afraid of that man
but all they could do was to give me the details of the person.
Hence, I request you to kindly look into the matter at the earliest and take suitable action.
Thanking You,

Complaint letter about the poor quality food served in the Canteen.
Mr. Nala Bheema Rao
Contractor, Canteen,
Rajiv Arogya Sri College of Engineering.
Ref: Sub-standard Food
Dear Mr. Rao,
I, along with my classmates have visited our college canteen run by you. I wanted to throw a party to my friends for
winning a prize in the quiz competition. Unfortunately, the sub-standard food served in your restaurant really dampened
our spirits.
We have ordered Egg puffs first. The puffs are tasteless and moreover the eggs had a rotten smell. The server had told us
that it happened for the first time. Unwilling to disappoint my friends, I have ordered some chips. Even they had not been
any better. They are stiff and dripping with poor quality oil.
I hope in future the quality of your food is able to match up to the quality of your service.
Yours Sincerely
