Abstract: In this research paper, the author explores the task on critical reading through ‘learning by doing method’ to bring out the ensuing perceptions of the learners in the perspective of teaching of EFL. This research probes mainly on how reading could enable individual interest in critical appreciation of the novel and how experiential learning through ‘learning by doing method’ develops the learners’ skills. Theoretical groundwork for task assignment on the model learning has been demonstrated for the respondents. As this task emphasizes mainly on self learning through learning by doing method, resembles close with the experiential learning technique. This research asserts to be pragmatic, implementing a task based experiential learning English through learning by doing methodology. This task is confined to the critical appreciation of the contemporary novel for the undergraduate engineering students from one of the reputed national institutes of technology in India.
