Keywords:Learning Styles, Language Teachers, Effective Strategy, Speaking Skills
Learner differences in learning language skills differ from one individual to another. Different learning styles (LS) of the learners give the facilitator a tough challenge to meet the expectations of the learners. Coming to Engineering professionals it is known that the learners give priority to the core subjects and a little effort for the language skill. Therefore, it is a challenging task for the language teachers to grab learners’ attention and make learning effective. This paper attempts to explore strategies to overcome the challenges of the language teachers. It specifically looks at the Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic (VAK) model based tasks as an effective strategy in motivating learners to develop their speaking skills regardless of the learners inattentive behaviors. VAK provides a varied range of tasks in the language class which enable the learners to focus in the tasks and increase their participation in the classroom.
