The story of EC...No, it doesn't begin with A,B or C but.....in fact it begins with the letter "I". This letter "I" is also the most commonly used word in English. So naturally our learning of EC starts with making some statements(Speech) about our own self ie., I.
I am Rajesh Kumar.
I am from Delhi.
I have a job in a bank.
I have a four member family.
I stay with my parents and a sister.
I work in SBI from 9 am to 4 pm. Now let's see a few questions (Interaction) about the speaker ie., I:

What's your working time?This method of learning English Communication(EC) is called "Bio-data based Speech-Interaction method".
