Hearty welcome from XAVIER INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT Azad Building, Azad Road, Kaloor, Kochi , Kerala, INDIA. Phone : ; ; Website:
Jacob Nettikkatt of Nettikkadan family, Director of Xavier Institute of Management presents to you The simplest Methodology in the original Communicative English, invented by him in 1978.
The British people, when ruling India, imported the English teaching system prevailing in the schools of Great Britain and introduced it in India, as it was. It had a great but hidden deficiency, a terrible shortcoming.
To learn any language other than mother tongue and become competent to handle it, we need three capacities in that language: a) reading ability; b) writing ability and c) speaking ability.
But the English people could import only the a) reading ability and b) writing ability in English from the schools of England, because the speaking ability was produced in children’s own homes (before going to school) and not in schools.
The greatest tragedy is that not a single scholar, expert or researcher in Great Britain or any other country in the world including India, knows it even today after 300 years.
The pitiful and horrible consequence of this inadvertent mistake is that billions of post-graduates in India and similar countries have been unable to communicate in English, in spite of learning from high degree-holders for 19 or 20 years.
Mr. Jacob Nettikkadan has been doing research at home as a hobby for the last 49 years to solve this global problem. He invented a new and scientific methodology in 1978, which other people now call “Communicative English” and has produced a book “Easy Way To Learn English” in four volumes. These books together serve as a long ladder to climb to the top of the English language from the bottom.
But the original methodology has been registered universally by Mr. Jacob Nettikkadan in his own name. So, other people cannot use it without his written licence. Others are using only the shadow of his invention and bluffing their students.
That is why after attending ‘two year’ or ‘four year’ “Bachelor” or “Master” of Communicative English course of universities, students fail to express ideas or speak English fluently and impressively.
Mr. Jacob Nettikkadan reasons rationally : “We Indians do not get a chance to learn to speak English at home, as the English children get in Great Britain, because we have a different mother tongue. But the English people have not devised any alternative system to teach us to speak English in classrooms.
The original Communicative English teaching system, invented by Mr. Nettikkadan, envisages a sextagonal (six-sided) development of a student, which takes care of 60% to 70% of a student’s total educational achievement in life, particularly the brain development.
These six items are : (1) Teaching how to make each type of expression or sentence in English by using a simple and interesting technique/formula. This alone will enable students to make their own sentences as required and communicate.
(2) Making the learners think in English directly. Without this, they will have to think in their mother tongue and translate into English, which causes mistakes and delay.
(3) Making the learners produce their own ideas quickly. Without producing their own ideas, they will have to learn by-heart what ideas other people produce.
(4) Teaching fluency Techniques and getting 100% fluency at each level. Without getting fluency at each level, they cannot achieve over-all fluency in the language.
(5) Convincing them about “What is being taught” and “Why they have to learn it”. These two items will enhance students’ learning interest to attend the class with high concentration and get perfect knowledge, free from confusion and doubt.
(6) Making them do the required activities to stimulate mental growth (food for their mind) so that their mind develops, strengthens and functions efficiently and effectively. This makes them smart, active, energetic, enthusiastic and confident. Otherwise they become shy, timid, withdrawn and filled with inferiority complex.
For this last item, Mr. Nettikkadan uses his latest book “The Importance of Personality Development”, without which education will be incomplete for students, according to Mahatma Gandhi’s definition of education.
For achieving a perfect grasp of the English language and a grip on its study, a blue print is made below for his teaching system of the original Communicative English which is a summary of Mr. Nettikkadan’s different discoveries on the whole English language.
THE REQUIREMENT IS MET THROUGH FOLLOWING CRUCIAL DISCOVERIES There are 1877 types of sentences in English. In each type we can make hundreds of new sentences by replacing words. Out of them, we need only a maximum of 752 selected types for our oral communication needs. An exciting discovery is that 15 selected categories of sentences cover 75% to 95% of our daily needs of expressions. A more exciting discovery is that six selected categories of sentences meet 50% to 85% of that daily need. The most exciting discovery is that 3 selected categories of sentences take care of 35% to 65% of our daily expressions. TheOur balance high 1125school typestext are of books, higher news- standard papers,. journals They are and needed other mostly books for use books, mostly journals, these news paperstypes of etc. sentences.
Valuable interpretations 1. A child uses only 3 categories of sentences to communicate in the English language very confidently and impressively. 2. If a foreign student learns these 3 categories of sentences and gets fluency, using fluency- techniques, he can communicate equally well and within a very short time. 3. Six selected categories of sentences are enough to give 50% to 85% of communicating power.
4. To get 75% to 95% of speaking power, a person needs only a selected 15 categories of sentences, because these types of sentences are repeatedly used by changing words, by maximum number of people. 5. Our postgraduates fail to speak English, because they always deal with the written area of language when they read famous writer’s books. They never enter the spoken area for study.
Method of making sentences has to be utmost scientific ie there must be an easy way to make sentences from the lowest to the highest level. A small experiment below reveals a great information. METHOD OF MAKING SENTENCES IN ENGLISH
Children see birds. Cover the Verb portion. The meaning of the sentence disappears. Cover both sides one after another. There is some meaning left. Conclusion: Verb gives the central meaning to a sentence, OR Verb is the LIFE OF A SENTENCE. Guidance: In our study of language, Verb must get great importance.
FURTHER STEP OF STUDY If we divide a sentence into three columns as shown below and learn to fill them with suitable words, we can get small but correct sentences in English. Actor Action Receiver of Action (Subject) (Verb) (Object)
Let us get these three columns filled in by somebody and see whether we get sentences. Actor Action Receiver of Action Children catchbirds. Mr. Mohanobservesletters. Iobeyhim. Hebelievesher. Sheservesus. Weunderstandyou. Youlovethem. Theyteachit. Itlikesme.
HAPPY NEWS The attempt proves successful in making baby-level sentences. When we learn a new language, irrespective of our age and academic qualification, we have to start learning at the baby- level.
REALIZE THE FACT The filling of the three columns was not done by us. So, they are not our own sentences. We have to learn to fill in these columns with our own words, to get our own sentences. We can make a ready-made MOULD (Die), as shown below, to make filling of “Actor” and “Receiver of Action” columns very easy and scientific.
Actor Action Receiver of Action Any Noun (s) Ex. Boy boy ” ” (Pl) Ex. Boys boys I me We us. You(s) you(s) You(pl) you(pl) Personal He him. Pronouns She her. It it. They them. Interrogative Who(s) whom(s) Pronoun Who(pl) whom(pl) Other Pronouns (s) This this. ” ” (pl) These these.
SEEING IS BELIEVING Let us watch how this miraculous chart helps a child in INSTANT LEARNING OF ENGLISH. In this chart, let us fill in the Action column with a single Tense form of Verb and watch what possibilities are open to a child in learning the language by itself.
Actor Action Receiver of Action Any Noun (s) Ex. Boy boy ” ” (Pl) Ex. Boys boys I me We us. You(s) you(s) You(pl) you(pl) Personal He saw him. Pronouns She her. It it. They them. Interrogative Who(s) whom(s) Pronoun Who(pl) whom(pl) Other Pronouns (s) This this. ” ” (pl) These these.
What a child learns out of this chart in five minutes will be much more than five years’ study of English in some of the existing institutions. Other gains of the child from such study will be : (1) The child’s imagination will get wings to fly high and wide ; (2) The child will grow creative in life; (3) The child will enrich its own mental faculties as to be a GENIUS in life.
IMPORTANCE OF THE ‘MOULD’ 1.The ‘mould’ facilitates making of hundreds of small sentences in English to reach child-level language quickly and get communicating ability easily. 2.The learner can pick up a word from the “Actor” column and choose another word from the “Receiver of Action” column. After that he has to learn to fill in the “Action” column only to complete the sentence.
3.These 14 words in “Actor” column and “Receiver of Action” column can be called “MAGICAL WORDS”, because we can expand this list to hundreds of thousands of words, by replacing the first two and the last two words with similar words from dictionary.
4.After reaching this level, the student has to learn only a single technique called “Expansion of Actor and Receiver columns” and he can use it through out his life to make the Actor and Receiver columns for all the 1877 types of sentences in English. This is equal to or more than the study of many years in any other institutions including Universities.
FILLING IN OF ‘ACTION’ COLUMN 1.‘ Action’ column is to be filled with Verb. So, further study of English in this new style nearly centralizes on Verb and its extensive family. 2.Here, the learner has to learn the details of eight categories of verbs and how to use them to make expressions in English.
3.After this, we teach them details of 1877 usages of verbs systematically and with precision. With this knowledge, the further study of English will be a joyful and comfortable flight in a super jet aeroplane. That is why some of the students (even postgraduates) have admitted having obtained more knowledge, greater skills and confidence from Mr. Nettikkadan’s ten-day course than what they gained in their whole life. So, the study of Verb has to be utmost scientific.
The highest glamour of the Methodology is centralized on the following three points : (a) The learner will get clear, accurate and complete knowledge about the English language ie they will not have any confusion or doubt. (b) The slogan of the Methodology is: “5% study burden and 500% study benefits” or (c) “Years of study of English can be reduced to hours of study”.
Additional glamour of the Methodology is the most scientific dealing of the following extra headings which produce amazing results to the learner:
(i) “40 Magicians” - the clear, accurate and complete learning of the use of 40 Prepositions which multiplies the vocabulary by 40 times instantly.
(ii) “20 Wizards” - the proper learning of 20 sets of Conjunctions which enhances the standard and beauty of the English language by 20 times instantly.
(iii) “Extraordinary Questions” - the techniques to ask the most difficult questions in English, which other learners may usually fail to ask correctly.
(iv)“The Extraordinary Associate Verbs” - the most complicated, slippery, confusing area of the English language, which Mr. Jacob Nettikkadan considers “The Burmuda Triangle of the English language”. Contd. in the next page
The “flyover” built up by Mr. Nettikkadan helps the learner to grasp this area perfectly well without confusion and cross over to the other areas comfortably.
It has been proved in the methodology that every sentence we read, write or speak has a purpose to serve. There are 32 such purposes in all. All the sentences in English can be divided into 32 families of sentences according to purpose.
If the learner learns the purpose of each sentence while learning the language, it will be very easy to decide which type of sentence is to be selected to express an idea and also to choose the vocabulary. Otherwise, there will be confusion, delay and mistake in formulating the sentence.
When the learner goes through the details of another invention “Map of Language”, he will get a glimpse of the total language at a glance as if a picture pasted on a wall. For any scholar in the language, this is the ultimate end of learning, which remains only an unfulfilled dream for most advanced learners elsewhere.
Thus the new methodology and the four volume book “Easy Way To Learn English” provide the learner a unique and exclusive scholarliness in English, which he cannot get or expect to get in any other language today.
If any Government or any multi-billionaire desires to have these things in any other language, hundreds of scholars will have to work devotedly for many decades under a unified leadership. Yet there will be no guarantee for success.
We have already made a proposal to the H.R.D. Minister Mr. Kapil Sibal at New Delhi to introduce the above-described system in all the schools all over India and take up the training of master trainers who will train others.
If Mr. Nettikkadan’s four volume books are divided and distributed in all classes of High School and Secondary Schools in India, and only teachers trained by him teach them as prescribed, there will not be a single student in the whole country who cannot speak fluent English at the end of class XII.
Till the Government makes arrangement to introduce this methodology in schools and colleges directly, the school and college authorities can arrange to provide the course to their students in their own premises as parallel education.
Classes can be arranged by us for different batches of minimum 100 students each in a batch, one hour a day for 50 to 75 days. Periods should be provided for the purpose before- hand for the ensuing year.
We can conduct classes for students of Schools and Colleges of an area for five hours a day for 15 to 20 Saturdays, Sundays or holidays. Contd. in the next page
The fees, including course materials (Four volume English book + the book on Personality Development) will be Rs.3,000/- per candidate, for a minimum of 100 participants, depending upon the distance from Kochi, Kerala.
