An English training package for Ramji Mishra’s children
Based on suggestions received, I’ve finalised the following package:
Tutorials: Free access to tutorials has been organised by Rabi Kant Bharti. These are not very high quality, but the best that’s available locally in Bhadohi.
Watching documentaries on mobile phone: I’ve asked Renu to start with Free to Choose.
Watching Doordarshan English news.
Comics: Exploring how to provide a subscription for Amar Chitra Katha. Other comics can be provided as well.
Books: Strunk and White. ‘ll try to carry a few books with me when I visit Bhadohi in January. Have requested anyone else who can, to spare a few simple books in English, as well. Also Economics for Children. Then BFN and DOF.
Phone conversations: I’ll do this periodically in English
Writing practice: I’ll ask the children to write and send me material in English for review
Twitter: follow Richard Feynman and Thomas Sowell.
In addition to learning English, you’ll also get some brilliant advice and learn important things.
