English Learning kit for Semi-English schools
Students from semi-English schools in rural Maharashtra study all subjects in Marathi till class 4. In class 5, Science and Maths is introduced in English. As these students have local roots, it becomes very difficult for them to cope up with English. Apart from understanding and memorizing a chapter they face additional problems of communicating in a new language. The goal of this project was to design teaching-learning material for students from semi-English rural schools to help them understand English.

Design of a teaching-learning game for students from semi-English rural schools to help them communicate in English.
I visited schools around Pune to understand how students learn English. I attended English lessons given by the teachers from class 1 to 9. I also went through the syllabus of class 4 and 5 to understand the jump in vocabulary.
