Burlington English, India has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Delhi Board of School Education(DBSE) under which students will be provided support to develop global competencies in the English language.
The programme named as “ईnnovation in कmmunication”(Innovation in Communication) will focus on strengthening the schools’ efforts to develop an immersive English language learning environment by also building capacity of the respective school teachers through digital and offline interventions. It is in line with Delhi government’s vision to help students develop 21st century skills.
As a part of this partnership, more than 200 students will get all-round support for developing English language communication, which will be powered by deep technology. A wide range of learning options will be provided to students of Classes 1–12 in other Delhi government schools as well, that are not yet affiliated to DBSE. While for Classes 1 to 5, it would work to level up language acquisition by integrating content and technology to improve the way the English language is learnt, covering interesting themes; for Classes 9 to 12, it would aim to boost the spoken English skills amongst the students to support their future skilling and employability needs.
