India is a country with a huge population which is over more than a billion. With every passing day it is growing in all fields be it Agriculture, Industry, Infrastructure or Human Resource Development. The Government is launching a lot of schemes for children and students all over the country to learn various skills.
But in this race we all have ignored and forgotten about something. What about the Elderly, Adults and the grown-up. In their time the education system wasn’t so much well developed and reason being today a large part of our country’s total population still can’t properly speak even simple English.
Out of this population some of them are so that if they could be made to learn spoken English, then they could contribute in their work & understand their modern surroundings in a much better way than they currently do. These people include Farmers in villages, Taxi Drivers, Tour Guides, Middle Class Housewives, Low level Clerical Staff, Low Ranking Government Officials, Our Grand Parents and many more who could bring a change in society and their own lives if they learn spoken English.
So today we introduce you with English Seekho application.
