The Hindu EducationPlus Club aims to expand the scope of its programme

With the present-day employment market laying great emphasis on English language communication skills, thousands of students find themselves at a disadvantage in the race for jobs. Though they know the language, they are unable to speak with clarity and confidence.

The Hindu launched the EducationPlus (E-Plus) Club initiative to address the requirement for good speaking skills in English. The concept caught on among colleges, and made a perceptible difference in making students job-ready by the time they graduated.

Ideal platform

The clubs are designed to serve as a platform for students to interact informally, give each other the opportunity to practice writing and debating in English, overcome stage fear, build confidence, and acquire the ability to collect and retain information that can bring about an all-round improvement in their personality.

To guide these sessions, The Hindu EducationPlus supplement, appearing every Monday, carries a carefully researched language-learning module provided by Hyderabad-based SkillSpark.

We invite educational institutions to contact us if they would like to form such clubs.
