Spoken English Program for Engineering Students, June to August 2019
Though English is increasingly being regarded as a must-know language in India, it is also very interesting to observe that regional languages have influenced people in educational, cultural and social contexts to a great extent. Speaking English and knowing the language has always been a great challenge for people influenced by regional languages. This makes them unable to fulfil the emerging needs of the competitive and globalized setting. They are deprived of effective English learning environment and struggle to hold themselves strongly in the job market after formal graduation degree education.
Nirmiti Academy is happy to offer a helping hand and the required guidance to such young struggling people around. And so, we kickstarted a Spoken English Program for such a batch of 2 young and dynamic boys from Engineering specialisation in May 2019. Both of them were tutored for over 60 hours of core training in using English language and raise their bar in speaking, writing, vocabulary building and comprehension. We are indeed happy of their willingness and determination to empower themselves with the right tools of English.
Sreeraj, a diploma holder in Engineering from Crist Polytechnic, Irinjalakuda, Kerala, was in search of a job in Mumbai. His job search landed him up at an Engineering company in Thane. But due to the barrier in English language and communication, his job application was rejected by the company. This failure got his family closer to the decision of pursuing a new journey of learning English and laid the first stepping stone to his path of success by enrolling in Nirmiti Academy. We are happy to help him lay these stones and be a bridge to his path of success.
Saikrishna, also a diploma holder in Engineering, came all the way from Kerala to Mumbai with high expectations of finding a suitable job in Mumbai. His family comes from a rich understanding how important is English language to create your existence in corporate world. His expectations and dreams were just a stone’s throw away from him as he started his job search. The block in his path towards the realisation of these dreams was English Language. Being highly influenced by regional language, he was finding it difficult to interact and communicate confidently, spontaneously and fluently with everyone around. He then decided to come under the roof of Nirmiti Academy to be helped and guided in order to reach out to his dreams and aspirations.
“Dreams fetch you a way while determination to execute those dreams fetch you success.” The dreams of these young boys have helped them find the way to Nirmiti Academy, while we hope and wish them that their strong determination help them fetch their desired success too.
This Basic program of Spoken English emphasises more on laying strong foundations of Grammar, building up of vocabulary, self introduction, topic discussion etc. They are also exposed more to an English speaking environment. It focuses equally on the development of speaking skills by subjecting them to topic presentations, group discussions, role-plays, debates which will prepare them for their near future.
The learning outcomes of the Basic Spoken English program were:
Confident communication and body languagebr>
Improvement of vocabularybr>
Good understanding of the key concepts of Grammar
Enhancement of English pronunciation and accent neutralization
Self and background Introduction
Rest assured, we will be handholding these young lads in their goals. We wish them the best in all their future endeavours.
