Lucknow: The Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh has identified 50 schools in seven districts where students in Classes 9 and 10 will be taught one foreign language.

Every batch of students learning the foreign language will have about 25 students. The schools have been asked to select at least two foreign languages and prepare for classes from August. The teachers who are enrolled to teach the foreign languages will be given an honorarium of Rs 10,000 per month. Smart classes will be set up for these foreign language classes.

The seven districts that have been selected for foreign languages courses include Lucknow, Gorakhpur, Varanasi, Agra, Allahabad, Ghaziabad and Mathura.

The three month course in foreign languages is designed to teach the students how to read, write and speak the languages.

“If the students learn these foreign languages, they will get new job opportunities in the tourism sector and also in the corporate sector. Besides, this will also help them to compete with students from private English-medium schools”, said an official in the education department.

It may be recalled that chief minister Yogi Adityanath had proposed teaching of foreign languages to students in government schools last year and the government is all set to translate his drema into reality form next month.
