Anubhav’s English Anubhav with Women!

ITS ALL ABOUT ENGLISH AND MUCH MORE……..

Sep 30: The 30 hrs Proficiency in Spoken English Course organized by ‘Anubhav’ the women’s forum of St Aloysius College came to an end today. Around 40 Women from various Self Help Groups, and students interested to learn and improve their communication skills in English attended the course.
“We have learnt and also improved our English, It was educating and fun at the same time,” was the chorus of the participants. We had a great time with the ‘students’ who were our ‘teachers’. We are grateful to the organizers of this certificate course,” said one of the participants while sharing her experiences.



Addressing the participants, Ms Sonia D’Costa, the Coordinator of the Certificate Course, said “Learning English is learning to ride a two-wheeler or a four-wheeler; the instructor can help you to understand the basics but you will not learn to ride properly unless you take a ride yourself. So, with the basics taught here, you need to improve it by reading, listening and writing English regularly. If you do so in six months times you can speak English as fluently as I do!”
Participants were awarded certificates at the end of the course. Ms Shalini Aiyappa, Prescilla D’Silva -the Staff Co-coordinators of the Association-, Anusha, the Secretary of the Association were present on the occasion.
