●First, most of the schools and
teachers do not teach this subject, and this is the reason why most students
regard this subject as new.
●Another view that makes this subject
different and mistreated is that some people, especially who are not English
Language Teachers, think that this subject is just a part of main English
Language Subject. They think that English Language Subject has 'Literature in
English' in it.
these claims are not true. Literature in English is a different subject that
should be treated differently as well.
●First, in English Language Subject
there is a 'Reading Programme' (or 'Response to Reading') section which is
mistakenly considered as the same with Literature in English subject.
●Secondly, one of the functions of
literature is to develop language. Thus, literature has to be used in order to
improve language learning.
Literature as a subject is entirely recognized treated differently in ordinary
level secondary schools, high schools, colleges, and universities as well. This
proves that Literature in English Subject is different from English Language
Subject. They are two different subjects. Education stakeholders, parents,
teachers and students should recognise this fact and collectively work together
in order to take this subject forward.
this fact and the need of this subject, KACHELE ONLINE has introduced a Literature in
English subject examination format.
