Kabini Foundation is now having English language classes for the students of the area. These classes are held every Sunday...they are being held for the past 7 weeks..and on the day of the launch of the Library, the classes were being held as usual. Some pictures from that day...11th September 2011.
Prem Kumar is the teacher...we are so fortunate to have him come to Kabini Foundation and teach English to the eager students of Kabini. We have been in search of a teacher for many years now! About 45 students have been attending the classes...from the age group of 8 yrs to 18 yrs!
Prem Kumar is the principal of a private school in Sargur (about 35 kms away) and is passionate about teaching English...he has a experience of more then 20 years!
He uses modern teaching aids like AV lessons..and makes it very interactive for the students...we could see good participation and sincere efforts from the students...
In this exercise, the students were asked to form pairs and practise their English by introducing their partner to the rest of the class and the audience...two shy girls participating in the exercise...they did so well!!
Eager and enthusiastic students..improving their English language skills would contribute positively to their skills and also their confidence..which would in turn make them more employable...
The Guests who came for the inauguration of the Library witnessed some English language sessions in progress...and were very appreciative of this initiative. Hopefully we can continue to have the services of Prem Kumar...and see substantial improvement in the students of Kabini.
Some of the Resort managers now want the services of Prem Kumar for improving the English skills of their staff.
