Now learn English through mobile
KATHMANDU: The British Council unveiled on Monday a new programme for learning English through mobile phone. A question in English pops up in your mobile set if you type ‘ques’ and send it to 5555. Along with the question, three alternative answers also appear which you are to choose from. Whether your answer is right or wrong will also appear the moment you SMS your answer. The charge for this is three rupees per question.
Speaking at the programme for unveiling the Learning English through Mobile Programme, Education Secretary Kishor Bikram Thapa, said that English is not only an international language but is equally important and useful to people acquiring technical and vocational education.
He expressed the hope that this programme launched by the British Council would be very useful to the interested people.
The Education Secretary also spoke of the need of teaching English language in the context of Nepal.
National Director of the British Council, Dr Robert Munro, said that the Council has been running English language learning courses at 40 schools in 21 districts and language training through radio and print media targeted to the youth. RSS
