Pune: Foreign Languages ​​in PMC Institutions | Pune News

PUNE: The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has decided to introduce German, French and Spanish in civic schools from the next school year. The civic body appointed agencies for the work.
City authorities said the administration is in contact with various institutes that teach foreign languages. Discussions were also held with Savitribai Phule Pune University.
“We are going to start teaching foreign languages ​​to students in four municipal high schools as part of a pilot project. It will be extended to other schools depending on the response and outcome of the first two batches,” said Shivaji Daundkar, a senior city official.
The standing committee has given the green signal and the funds will be released. A project report on expenses and other formalities is being prepared and submitted for final approval in the coming days to the authorities, including the education committee.
Language course details will be shared with students.
“If we provide foreign language training to the student from an early age, it will be easy for them to assimilate,” said Manjushree Khardekar, chairman of PMC’s education committee.
“This will benefit students, who wish to pursue careers in different fields after their school education,” Khardekar added.
The PMC runs schools in Marathi, English, Urdu and Kannada.
