English Day is a much – awaited annual event at VSM. Jan 6, 2019, saw the fourth such event organized by the English Team of VSM.
The English Day is an event where students get their own platform to speak English, where mistakes are not ridiculed, and where the effort to perform is appreciated more than the performance itself.
The Guest Speaker invited was Ms Seema Oka, who is a busy corporate trainer in English Communication. Yet, she took the effort to personally meet some of our students to gauge their level of English, before speaking to them on English Day. Her talk reflected her understanding of the students’ background, their limitations and their fear of the language. No wonder then, those students instantly related to her talk and had a lively interaction with her.
The surprise event was a debate between students and VSM volunteers. Students stood their ground firmly and were cheered wholeheartedly by one and all.
The grand finale was the Prize – distribution. Prizes were given to the best debate speakers and to the winners of the word game.
