    Abstract :
    English has always been a foreign language or the second language for the Indian learners though India has the second highest number of English speaking population in the world. As such, an average English-speaking Indian happens to make a lot of errors not only grammatically but also in using the vocabulary especially when using the words that refer to a specific or neuter gender. The paper attempts to study the way pronouns are taught in grammar classes and the application aspects of them, in comparison with the ways the pronouns are used and the problems it creates for the Indian learners to comprehend. The paper also suggests ways to teach pronouns to Indian learners to interact with global audience.
