English language teaching is becoming more popular throughout the world since English language got the place of a global language. Teaching English as a second language would be more interesting and easy if it is taught through the local colors of understanding. Literature is the best source to make language learning easy and fascinating. For the beginners of English language learner, there are large numbers of stories which can be taught in classrooms. Short stories, specifically children stories, short poems and novellas can be good source to arise interest among learners. Literary texts provide chance to come across different type of emotions, expressions and sentence structures. Literary language enables learners to differentiate between formal and informal language. Literary text can be taught through audios or by showing movies based on literary work with English subtitles which not only will improve their pronunciation and but also will help to improve their listening for English language. Reading literary text during language learning builds a rich vocabulary for a new learner.Learning language through literature also help the learner to know other cultures very closely, because literature of different languages provide with the platform of various cultural values, rules and regulations, and prepare the mind of readers to accept the differences between cultures and respect the values of others.This research will help the teachers and students as well which would be mainly focused over the students of English department only. This is an objective research; a survey among the students would be done by the researcher itself, in which short text of different genres of literature would be given to be taught during language learning classes. The data of the research would be calculated by SPSS.
