Online language learning classes are being started by ABVP (Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad) from Saturday. Students from JNU are also going to take part in these online classes organized by ABVP. ‘Bhasha Sangam’ was launched on June 26 as an online initiative under which the students will be able to learn any foreign or Indian language.
Shivam Chaurasia, President of ABVP JNU said that they had started the initiative in the previous month. They had invited applications from interested students across the country and abroad. They received great responses to the language courses. The classes will begin Saturday.
The members of ABVP JNU said that these courses will be beneficial to those students who are interested in learning the basics of a language. These introductory courses will also be beneficial to those students who are looking for international fellowships to study abroad. ‘Google Classroom’ will be used to conduct these classes.
Chaurasia said that the ‘Bhasha Sangam’ program has received appreciation and more than a thousand registrations from India and abroad. Lectures on the basics of various languages will be given by around 50 language experts, research scholars, and teachers. It is notable that students, common citizens, and professionals have registered for learning.
Govind Dangi, Secretary ABVP JNU, said that learning to speak a new language for a student is an opportunity to learn the basics of diversity and culture associated with it. This will be beneficial in promoting Indian languages globally. The ABVP JNU has made an attempt at improving the communication skills of students in the lockdown through ‘Bhasha Sangam.’
