Language Development Programme

Jankidevi Public School works towards the overall development and well being of students. To be successful in this competitive world, one needs to have a good command on English language, which is a global medium of communication, and have a pleasing personality. To give our students an edge in this ever changing global scenario, we conduct a ‘Language Development Programme’ for them.

This Programme is conducted by Mrs. Mamta H. Dua, who is a trainer and examiner for the examinations of Trinity College London, The International Examinations Board. She and her team specially come from Mumbai, every year in the months of April and May, to help Jankians excel their English Elocution and Conversational Skills.
The four essential pillars that contribute to one’s confidence and eventually shape up one’s personality are one’s attitude, general awareness, etiquettes and language. The precise goal of this programme is to sharpen these four pillars and make young Jankians confident global citizens.

Language Development Programme is a comprehensive course that works towards the holistic development of students by improving their language, grooming them with right mannerism, inculcating qualities like public speaking, enhancing their overall communicative skills, building up their confidence and thus enhancing their personality.
This is achieved through a well designed curriculum that includes reading, recitation, group discussions, presentations, audio visual methods and other play way activities.
Etiquettes and mannerisms are also an integral part of this programme. The aim is to make the students well- mannered, courteous and polite. Students are also taught table manners and dining etiquettes.

Through this programme we also try to inculcate the habit of reading. Reading is the best way to improve vocabulary. We introduce are students to the pleasures of reading through age-appropriate books. We introduce young minds to the genius of Roald Dahl and help them explore the magical world of Narnia. We also help them enjoy contemporary authors like Rick Riordan and Anthony Horowitz. and appreciate English classics. They also learn to write book reviews and express opinion on movies based on books.
Through this programme we also try to make the students more responsive, well-versed, sensitive and informed. This is done by inculcating the habit of reading newspapers. Group discussions on current affairs, exchange of views, outlooks and ideas create general awareness and students have a healthy exchange of information and opinion, thus giving them the ability to converse on any topic under the sun.

To sum it up, the Language Development Programme is a comprehensive course that includes personality development and public speaking with language as the base. Through this programme we inspire the students to read, trigger their thirst for knowledge, motivate them to be more aware and informed, make them more courteous and polite, improve their self confidence, enhance their public speaking skills and thus ensure that they have a pleasing personality and become confident global speakers of tomorrow.
