Abstract: English as a global and Multi National Companies’ language has gained its tremendous importance among college students of India. Students have realized the necessity of knowing and using the language to get the job. But, how to learn it in the short period of time is the question predominantly present in these students’ mind, which has to have its answer from language experts. The first and comfortable choice for teaching language at ease and quick is literature which is short and has plot and narrative. F.C. Bartlett, the psychologist, the founder of the concept of ‘schema’ scenario and the cognovits insist on the possibility of language learning through technical use of schemas and ‘filling index’ or cognitive map present in human brain. It is also a well realized fact that through concentrating on development of one skill, it is not possible to make the learners to use the language. Hence, all the four skills have to be equally given with importance to develop them in learners effectively, to enable them to use the language.
Keywords: Listening, speaking, reading, writing, schema, activities and literature.
