According to the survey by employability measurement company Aspiring Minds, English learning level among engineering graduates is very poor in India.

The survey revealed that four out of every 10 engineers in India are unable to understand English, which includes their day-to-day conversation and writing correct sentences. They do not even posses the English comprehension skills required to understand engineering school curriculum.

The survey was carried over 55,000 engineers in 250 different engineering colleges in India. The findings of the survey are in sharp contrast to the fact that English fluency is considered as one of the key qualities that recruiters look for during the interview process.

The survey found that only 57 per cent of the respondents can write grammatically correct sentences in English and less than 48 per cent can understand moderately sophisticated words of English.
