Quest Learning

by IIM Lucknow Alumna

English plays an important role in the lives of existing and potential students, as well as working professionals. It is widely used in official communications, all over the world. Its importance is largely felt by people working in MNCs, where the common medium of communication between people from different backgrounds is English. For students planning to go abroad for higher education, where the mode of instruction is English, being able to communicate in English is of utmost importance. And though English has become the medium of instruction in most schools in India, these days, the quality of instruction plus the lack of enthusiasm for the language by the students themselves, has left a lot to desire.

Half of the content on the internet is in English. Hate it for like it, one cannot deny the importance of this language in academics as well as professional lives. If our entrance to a good college depends on clearing English proficiency tests so does that promotion in the office.
