CM Badal: British teachers to make Punjabis proficient in English

By Ians

Chandigarh, March 12: Punjab students, especially those in rural areas, could soon be dealing in the Queen's language if Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal has his way.

 British teachers to teach English skills


Badal urged British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond to send a delegation of English school teachers Britain to make students in Punjab, especially with rural background, "proficient in spoken as well as written English".

The request was made when the visiting British foreign secretary, who inaugurated the country's deputy high commission here, called on Badal.

Badal said the significance of the English language was that it was a "global link" of communication in the world. Both leaders discussed co-operation between Britain and Punjab in the fields of skill development, food processing and power generation from solar and biomass waste.

A significant number of Punjabis are settled in Britain since decades.
