Our Interior Design course student Parvathy Ramachandran stated that Language is a major part of the curriculum of our curriculum for the students and JD Institute as we have students from different states and even countries. India is a country with such rich and varied heritage it was an amazing experience to learn about different cultures and languages. Our students put up various fun acts like a skit, a speech and a humorous twist to commercials of various conventional Products. The highlight of the program was a game conducted for the faculty members which required them to perform small fun tasks and it was such an amazing experience”.
India is a culturally diverse country, everyone talks in English as it is the common language of communication in the corporate world and educational institutes, but our mother language is the first language we all talk, so it holds an important place in our heart. These kind of days help everyone to rekindle their language and our memories with our state language.
