The National Curriculum Framework (NCF) 2005 and the National Focus Group (NFG) on the teaching of English and Indian Languages have made a decided shift in the approach to language teaching in our country. However, even after this significant step much remains to be done. The new NCERT textbooks launched in 2006 did not completely reflect the thinking articulated in the NCF and the NFG position papers. These changes are also not adequately represented in the approach of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) which also publishes language textbooks, and more importantly conducts the all-important class XII examination and structures the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation for schools affiliated to it.

Note: Published twice a year in January and July, Language and Language Teaching (LLT) reaches out to language teachers, researchers and teacher educators on issues and practices relevant to language teaching. The primary focus of the publication is language pedagogy in elementary schools. LLT proposes to establish a dialogue between theory and practice so that practice contributes to theory as much as theory informs practice. The purpose is to make new ideas and insights from research on language and its pedagogy accessible to practitioners while at the same time inform theorists about the constraints of implementation of new ideas.
