Delhi Starts 'Spoken English' Course For Government School Students

New Delhi: The Delhi government is inviting applications from government school students for enrolment in the 'Spoken English' course to enhance their language speaking skills. The government  is launching a 'Spoken English' course for students studying in government schools from June onwards.

According to officials, this is an important step towards making government schools a viable, high-quality alternative to expensive private schools.

According to a notification released by the Directorate of Education, NCR, Delhi, the programme has been organised in collaboration with the British Council, India-McMillan Education, Academy for Computers Training (Gujarat) and Trinity College London. The last date for enrolment is May 23.

The course is open for full-time regular students who have taken part in Class 10 board exams and have passed the pre-board exams in three subjects with English as a subject.

"Government school students mostly come from economically poor backgrounds. When I meet them, this was their biggest demand - Sir, 'hame English bolna sikhwa dijiye.' (Sir, help us to learn spoken English). I am so happy this course is now starting for government school students," Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted.
