The purpose of this study is to analyse how the semiotic resources can be helpful in improving or increasing the level of learning among young learners especially in rural India. Technology has taken a new shape especially in the sector of education, information and communication. Even in the swift developmental process around the world, some communities or people still stay away from margin, unaware of the development in the education and technology. The children who are in rural areas are economically, socially backward and are deprived from good education. This affects them psychologically. In urban areas education level has raised consistently and school children are privileged to get good education and shape their personality accordingly. Education to the young learners is not simply reading books and passing the examination. It must help them to prepare for their future. These categories of children can be taught using different modes of semiotic resources to make them understand the language and the concepts clearly.  Semiotic resources can be used in communication, especially using the language, gestures and expressions. This has a great impact on teaching learning process. This paper gives an idea of how these semiotic resources can be used effectively to teach English language and how it can be embedded in educational settings.
