Father Sebastian, principal, Loyola School said that the initiative has provided a learning opportunity to the students to expand their horizon.
They will learn about the German culture. The exchange programme which will result between the two nations will enhance international bonding and one more step towards our students becoming global citizens.
“There are many reasons why we should learn a foreign language. Learning a language of another country helps one understand its culture.
Language becomes a peephole to look at the nation’s culture, its traditions and its history. Loads of research work, journals and documents need immediate translation into English to facilitate knowledge liquidity in the Indian market.
Building a workforce that is fluent in a foreign language is vital to assisting India’s emerging status on several international fronts,” said a student.
