Lexis and grammar:

the use of number of common lexical, especially to perform certain language functions such as agreeing, disagreeing,expressing surprise, approval, etc.

Connected speech:

i.e. common phenomenon in spoken interactions in which sounds are modified (assimilation), omitted (elision), added(linking r) or weakened (through contractions and stress pattering).Effective speakers thus need to be able not only produce individual phonemes (as I would have gone) but also to use connected speech(I’ve gone)

Expressive devices:

native speakers of English change pitch and stress of particular parts of utterances, or vary volume and speed to convey meanings beyond their words, especially in face-to-face communication. Students need to recognize and deploy some of such features and devices in the same way if there are effective communicators

Constantly changing world and the continuous flow of information demand professionals to extract the essence of information and exploit it instantly.

Anyone who is involved in the Education, Skill Building or in Human Resources Development can’t ignore the following facts:
