Abstract

The current study focuses on the effects of English language instruction using Education 4.0 in Telangana's engineering institutions. Telangana has many educational facilities that offer Education 4.0, or technology-based learning. It fosters creativity in education. At the fundamental level, students can learn by being provided with a self-learning opportunity. The majority of the subjects were learned through Education 4.0. As a result, Telangana kids also learn English via Education 4.0, which has an effect. The purpose of this study is to evaluate how Education 4.0 has affected Telangana's English language instruction. In Telangana's engineering institutions, survey-based research has been done for this aim. The analysis used in the study is quantitative. The data gathered from the chosen educational institutions were analysed using SPSS software. The findings indicate that adopting Education 4.0 as a tool has considerably influenced English language acquisition. The kids benefit from excellent learning thanks to its self-supporting, stretchable learning system. This report also suggests further research to determine the effects of Education 4.0 in other regions of India and overseas.
