On this occasion, a humorous skit ‘English Bol Desi Dhol’ was presented by the students of the school on ‘The Teaching of English as a Foreign Language’, highlighting the misuse and mispronunciation of English words by foreign learners. The skit depicted the plight of an English language teacher with a classful of students for whom English is a foreign language. The humour arising due to the mispronunciation of words and the mayhem caused by similar sounding words entertained the audience thoroughly, leaving them in raptures. The skit also gave an insight into the technical difficulties in mastering the language due to linguistic differences.
The Chief Guest Prof. Ashok K. Chawla, in his address lauded the school Principal and Management for encouraging trans-cultural learning. Emphasizing on the importance of learning English language in today’s time of globalization, he said that such exchange programmes play an important role in bridging the linguistic barriers.
