The Early Learning Centre(ELC) along with the help of School Development Monitoring Committees( SDMCs) have come up with an idea to give more emphasis on the English language so that the students from the Government schools could become as proficient in the language as their English medium counterparts.
Karadi Path Method to be adopted for learning
Through the Karadi Path method, which is an indigenously developed language learning process that is capable of making the learners achieve proficiency in the language by the time they are in their Class X. Five government school students from Gandhinagar, Mannagudda, Surathkal, Kodikkal and Marakada has been selected to go through this programme at the initial phase. ELC has previously supported the underprivileged children through their programme ‘Be the change’.
The students from St. Agnes Centre for Post-Graduate Studies and Research would volunteer and teach students from these schools. This would help them in developing leadership and managerial skills along with practical skills and better insight of the world that is around them above the text books. This programme would help students to learn English as if they are learning their own mother tongue and this would help the children pick it up easily.
The annual fee of the programme that is scheduled to start from December is set to be Rs. 750, which would be either paid by the parents of the students or would be arranged by the SDMCs through donations and charities. The money is needed for buying teaching material and completing logistical support to carry forward the programme. The programme will start with three to four times a week and will be increased or decreased depending on the number of volunteers and the size of the class.
