Why Should Foreign Languages Be Restricted To Only High Heeled Public Schools Students In India?

Le Frehindi believes that the real “Young India” studies in schools which exists in corners of big cities, small towns & villages.

We have foreign languages like French, German, Chinese, Spanish etc in most of the privately owned schools but how many Schools which exists in the nooks & corners of big cities, small towns & villages where underprivileged students go to study have a foreign language ?

The answer to the above question is a “BIG NONE“.

Le Frehindi in association with ICTFL ( Indus council on teaching of foreign languages ), has taken pledge to change the same in next 5 years.

We started approaching the schools in under privileged areas in DELHI & NCR about two years back & the results are to be seen by all.

We targeted schools for the economically sections of society where there was no French as a third language. We introduced French in 3 such schools in East Delhi in 2015 & in 2017 we can say that all those students have made us proud by learning the French language with all the passion & commitment. We helped the teachers design a specific plan & curriculum using similarities in “Hindi & French” grammar as the students in those areas were not very proficient even in English.

At the end of this article you will find some pictures of Bastille Day celebrations of one such school in the vicinity of East Delhi on the border of the state of Uttarpradesh & Delhi.

The students presented a play on French revolution followed by the National anthem of France & India.

The whole program was presented in both French & English whereas the play was purely in French.

We would like to congratulate all the French teachers placed by us in that school as well as their students for such a wonderful performance.

The students in this school were no less then any high heeled public school in rest of Delhi-NCR & this again reinforced our belief that if given an opportunity the underprivileged & poor sections of society can do wonders for India & for the world.

We are seeking financial aid & help ( For Air Fare ) from different philanthropic individuals & organisations to help us to sponsor 15 students of this school for a foreign exchange in May-June 2018 where these students from economically weaker sections also get a chance to experience the country whose language they love so much.
