Students today, despite being good in their respective fields, do not become FRONT RUNNERS at the national and international levels. This is due to their poor English language and communication skills. Schools across the country lay more stress on Reading and Writing skills only. In fact Listening and Speaking skills do not get required emphasis.
In order to develop the right English language and communication skills in all the areas of LSRW (Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing) it is important that these skills are worked upon right from the primary level education.
