Re: British Council Training in Tamil Nadu - The training was very useful. The same must be given to all my peer teachers
Teacher - Govt High School, Salem
The toilets are very clean now. We are taught by teacher how to keep the bathrooms clean. We take turns to be the cleanliness monitor. I am the monitor now. My best friend and I love to read different books from our class-room library. We get to know about planets , other countries, different animals and birds.

The classroom looks so beautiful now. I like the animal chart on the wall. I read all the charts whenever I get free time. My teacher has taught me about the importance of washing hands before eating. She also told us about the diseases that affect us if we dont drink clean water.

Like all other children, Niharika also loves going to school every day. She dreams of becoming a teacher when she grows up. For any 8 year old this is a big ambition. I am very thankful to Asha Kiran center for bringing much needed motivation in Niharika.

I love the teacher at the center. She teach us numbers, letters and also engage us in co-curricular activities. I dance and sing with my friends and teacher at the center. When I fall sick, she comes to my house and briefs me about that day's class.

I heard about this program from my neighbour. I didn't join the course initially as I was scared. I had never been to school and thought I was too old to learn. But my neighbour, Rina made me understand how this would benefit me. So I just went to class one day. It has changed my life. I am so glad I went to class that day.
I was married at a very young age. We were 5 sisters and none of us went to school. Our brothers studied till class 8. I have spent my life working at home for my family and in the field. It is for the first time I am learning something for myself. It makes me very proud that whatever I am learning from my teacher here, I am able to go home and teach the same to my grand-daughter who goes to school.

I like going to school but I did not like to attend arithmetic classes. I never do well in arithmetic examination also. But now after attending arithmetic classes through E-learning system, my interest towards this subject has also increased. Now I feel I will do well in arithmetic test.

This audio-visual teaching-learning method is making learning more interesting for students, resulting in increase in attendance and attentiveness in class. Now, students are showing greater interest in learning because they are seeing all their lessons live on the screen. We hope that even the students who scored less marks will score better now.

What we do for the children is going to have an impact in their future. This is a turning point in our learning process, because earlier students did not interact with us confidently, but due to this E-learning process, the students are very confident now a days.

Re: Training in Wai, Maharashtra - The workshop was excellent! One of the best I have been to in my career. Comfortable atmosphere and knowledgeable presenters. Now I have cancelled my plan of taking voluntary retirement. Now I am going to start my career as a teacher once again. Thanks Rotary

Earlier the classrooms were dark, which made the classroom atmosphere dull. Students used to sit on the floor even during winters. Washrooms were dirty and almost non-functional. Now things have changed. Children pay more attention in the class,they are regular and even we feel good while teaching them.
