Teaching of English

George Andrews [Kottiry]. English through Direct Method. Mannuthy: Don Bosco Publications, 1982.

George Kottiry and Joe Kallupura, Spoken English: A Complete Text Book with Grammar, Dialogue, Composition and Vocabulary. Mannuthy: Don  Bosco Mannuthy Publications, 2010, 2011.

Francis Karackat. Spoken English: A Complete Text Book with Grammar, Dialogue, Composition and Vocabulary. [Malayalam: Naveena Sailiyil.] Vennala, Kochi: Don Bosco Publications, 2014.

These books follow the Direct Method that Krishnamurthy, who taught us Kannada in KJC, used so effectively. George Andrews Kottiry explicitly mentioned the fact that he had learned the method from Krishnamurthy. It would seem that Karackat has simply taken over the earlier book, adapting it for a Malayalam speaking person.

U.P. Upadhyaya and N.D. Krishnamurthy. Conversational Kannada: A Microwave Approach. Bangalore: N.D.K. Institute of Languages, 1972, 1981, 1990.
