LANGUAGE SESSIONS

Tamil Linguist E.Annamalai took 12 sessions about languages. Prof.E.Annamalai is a visiting professor in many universities across the world. He was once the Director of Central Institute of Indian Languages, wrote many books on Tamil language and grammar. He is the father of our beloved Asha supporter Melliyal. It was the time when In Tamilnadu politics we had discussions about language guidelines in the new education policy of India and Hindi language imposition. His lessons gave our students a scientific approach towards language. He majorly concentrated on Tamil during the sessions, but also differentiated other languages like English when discussing grammar and quoted many world languages across the sessions. At the end of each session, students received homework and it was discussed in the next class. Students also were encouraged to ask questions during and after the sessions.
