English lesson for mentors

Patna, Sept. 12: In a bid to improve the standard of English classes in schools, the state human resource development (HRD) department is planning to involve British Council to train some of its secondary school teachers.

The state is planning to ink a deal with British Council in this regard.

According to the plan, the British Council personnel would train select teachers from the state. Later, they would be used as resource persons to train the rest of the secondary school teachers.

The HRD departments new initiative is aimed at imparting quality education to students. Based on the feedback from the five districts of the state, the HRD department decided to train its teachers to make English teaching user-friendly.

Kiran Kumari, the state programme officer at the HRD department, told The Telegraph: Our thrust is on teaching English in a user-friendly way and the emphasis will be on conceptual learning.

Kiran said: In government schools, mainly in rural pockets, most of the teachers resort to translation method of English teaching. The new scheme will focus on conceptual method of English teaching with usage of correct pronunciation, grammar and ascent.

Sources said the focus of the training for teachers would be on various aspects of English. It would aim at improving the grammar, vocabulary and conversation skills of teachers.
