KATF State meet begins

KANNUR, MARCH 3. Abdussamad Samadani, MP, has said that study of languages plays a key role in building a value-based society. Inaugurating the 46th State conference of the Kerala Arabic Teachers' Federation (KATF) here today, Mr. Samadani lamented that the study of languages was being sidelined in Government and unaided educational institutions as professional courses gained prominence in the educational field. As language played a vital role in human discourses, society could not afford to ignore study of languages.

Urging language teachers to take more efforts to inculcate love of languages among students, the MP said the prevailing situation in which language studies were neglected should be changed.
