200 women complete English language course

200 women complete English language course

Sep 29, 2011 - 20:21

CHARIKARinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Two hundred womeninfo-icon graduated from a six-month English learning and computer literacy course in central Parwan province on Thursday, an official said.

Arranged by the women's affair department with financial support from the Provincial Reconstructioninfo-icon Team (PRTinfo-icon), the course featured students and government servants.

Director of Women's Affairs Shah Jahan Yazdan Parast said a dozen teachers were selected for the course, held in coordination with the Hura Hilal High School.

Shamsia Raufi, a schoolteacher, said the course was useful for participants from an economic perspective, because they could not afford payment.

As a result, they could speak English easily in addition to using computers, she added.

"Six months ago, we did not know anything about computer and English," said Bibi Zuhra Azimi, one of the students.  She asked the women's affairs department to arrange more such courses for students.
