About The School of Language

INTRODUCTION
Since language is a barrier to understanding others, the Institute regards the teaching of languages as an integral part of its work in the field of intercultural exchange.

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

 

The Institute is rooted in the teachings of Sri Ramakrishna which, among other things, stress the unity of mankind and the equal validity of all religions and cultures. The study of culture as the common heritage of all mankind is the specific field of this Institute and by teaching languages the school makes intercultural exchanges easier.Moreover, with the rapid development of communication, growth of international trade and commerce, widening scope of specialised studies and job opportunities in the developed and developing countries, more Indians are now travelling abroad and for them knowledge of foreign languages is becoming an essential

requirement. This social need is reflected in the growing number of students seeking admission to various language courses of the School of Languages of the Institute.
