Abstract

Communication skills are essential to increasing the employability of engineering graduates. It is
observed that majority of engineering graduates lack speaking skills. Sufficient guidance should be
provided to students in the direction of workplace communication. Thus, universities need to review the
language and communication courses and teaching methods to reach and surpass the needs of all
stakeholders. Therefore, taking these challenges into account, this paper focuses
on the importance of English speaking skills among engineering graduates in a mixed classroom, and the
challenges they face in both academic and professional life and their potential remedies. The pre-test and
post-test were performed on 30 engineering students to assess their speaking ability levels. The findings
indicate a substantial increase in their oral competency. The aim of the paper is to develop the oral
competency of students through Impromptu or JAM session speaking activity.
