The Delhi government is inviting applications from government school students for enrollment in the ‘Spoken English’ course to enhance their language skills.

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, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia tweeted.

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

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted: “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.”
