Learning and teaching can be done by unconscious and conscious ways. Aims of this paper is to discuss how learning and teaching can take place through unconscious and conscious method. For this discussion, the paper is divided as two parts. The first part of the paper proposes to discuss what is meant by unconscious and conscious learning and teaching and how these things can take place. And the second part of the paper decides to suggest certain views how the students who can able to speak and write in English and do not know Tamil language can be taught Tamil language through the unconscious and conscious learning and teaching method. There are three ways of learning and teaching. They are 1. Unconscious learning and unconscious teaching 2. Learning unconsciously and teaching consciously 3. Conscious learning and conscious teaching. The method of unconscious learning and unconscious teaching is likely to happen in family profession. Here the learner may be an illiterate. Though the learning unconsciously and teaching consciously method could be seen in various fields, here we can give the example of house builders. In a family, the grand father and his son may work as house builders. And the grandson of this family may also go along with them as their assistance. In conscious learning and conscious teaching method teachers, doctors and most of the professional people come under this category, men and women join in some course. They studied the subjects and they do work consciously. The paper also pointed out how the teacher can make use of various methods-oral, writing, listening cum repetitive-in order to kindle the learner's interest in learning Tamil language consciously as well as unconsciously.
