Using novel as the main material for language teaching in e-learning


E- Learning has become the most recent and most familiar form of distance education. E-learning or online learning is a kind of distance education that takes place over the cyberspace and it is of great use to the students who learn English language. It has gained much importance in the recent years as the minimum requirement for the learners is to access a computer, the online network and the zeal to learn the language. Language acquisition is a process by which the learners become competent to perceive and understand the language, and to use it as well. However, this paper aims to explore how the novels, the most adaptable genre of all literary forms, can be used at their best to speed up language learning in distance education. It attempts to present the idea of using a novel as an effective tool for teaching English language. In India, English is taught as a second language where literature can definitely play a major role. This paper takes up the fiction of Manju Kapur with a view to helping the learners develop their reading skills.
