Words mere words, said- Oscar Wilde, keeping this feeling in his heart that when used wisely, words can heal and spoken carelessly, they can wound. Words are sentient. Yes, they are. Words are not lifeless.
They walk the earth with you till your last breath. Words are sophisticated and words are barbaric too, just like humans. They just do not have garb on faces. They travel through our voice and silhouette our persona. Precise words can get you the first position in class. A student becomes favourite to its teacher because of the words he uses to write in his exam and to address his teachers and mates. Words show your upbringing. They bespeak your image in public.
Words form languages and languages tell us our history.
Greatest scriptures of the world could carve niche because of the words used to write them. The more one is proficient with language the better one can read and understand. But, this is despairing that in today’s cut throat environment our students do not have the liberty to study languages as an integral part of their curriculum. An Indian student always suffers on grounds of expressing himself to his parents, friends, teachers and answer sheets. If students have precise language to express their thoughts they will definitely perform well in life. Nowadays, students need to improve their spelling skills, increase their vocabularies, learn concepts and develop correct English usage that will help them in higher studies in foreign countries.
We at ALLEN believe that language and communication plays a vital role in one’s life. English is the lingua franca of the world. ALLEN as Cambridge English Authorized Exam Centre helps students increase the language proficiency from budding age.
Spellathon 2019 is an initiative taken by ALLEN Career Institute which aims at inculcating English speaking skills from the small age group. Spellathon is a spelling bee competition where contestants are asked to spell words at varying difficulty levels. The competition is conducted in two parts: – round 1 and the finale. Round 1 is a written test and final round has several interesting levels which expect students to answer questions based on their knowledge of the words.
