Launching of the project ‘let us learn English’ (Karpom Angilam) marked the installation of the new office bearers of the Rotary Club of Manapparai West here recently.

The main objective of the project is to promote English language among school students .

As a part of the project, English dictionaries and grammar books were distributed to 300 students of different schools in and around Manapparai town.

Communication skills playa key role in employability in the present scenario and there has been widespread complaint that students, particularly those from rural areas, could not match their urban counterparts in this field.

Maiden project

Hence the new team of Rotary Club of Manapparai West decided to launch ‘Karpom Angilam’ as its maiden project, K. Arumugam, who was installed as the new president, told The Hindu .

The club has already requested correspondents, headmasters and English teachers of the schools identified for the implementation of this project to take special initiative for creating interest among students for learning English using the dictionary and grammar books, he said. The club has also planned to donate dictionary and grammar books to 200 more students on the Independence Day, Mr. Arumugam said. The members will also be visiting the schools regularly to monitor the progress of the students, he added.

T. Valliappan, former Rotary district governor, installed K. Arumugam as president and his team of office bearers for the year 2012-13 on the occasion.

G. Nammalvar, organic scientist, gave away dictionaries and grammar books to the students of Government High School, Malaiyadipatti; Government Girls HSS, Manapparai; St.Antony’s HSS, Manjampatti, St.Ignatius High School, Avarampatti.
