AbstractTechnology and globalisation have greatly accelerated worldwide businesses to grow immensely and rapidly. As businesses have grown, corporate organisations have also expanded their commerce internationally. This has led to a universal language to communicate for business purposes. For this purpose, the English language has been accepted as a widespread language for communication. Of the language skills like listening, speaking, reading and writing, the speaking skill has gained prominence for business communications. But, the speaking skill of many corporate employees are not up to the expectation of the corporates. This problem needs to be confronted in the tertiary level itself. Thus, the onus lies on the educational institutions to equip their graduate students with effective speaking skill. This research paper has addressed this concern. Five speaking tasks were conducted with first year BTech students to enhance their speaking skill. This paper focuses on the task based language teaching pedagogy to augment students’ speaking skill.
