Abstract

Language is the primary source of communication through which we share our thoughts and ideas with others whereas on the other hand, it separates us from animals and makes us human beings. The English language is essential to the field of education because it is a primary language of press, in the research field and science. Language being global and to adapt to the present scenario in teaching language may seem quiet complex. Nevertheless, to prop interest and to simplify complications, situational comedies act as a medium to enrich language through not only words but expressions. This paper establishes views on teaching a language through the means of situational comedies, having implemented the cultural theory of schema where the schema is a generalized description or a conceptual system for understanding knowledge how it is represented and how it is used.
