Students, officials complete English course

Students, officials complete English course

Oct 24, 2011 - 19:37

KABUL (PAN): One hundred and fifty government officials and students were on Monday awarded certificates on completing a three-month course in English language and computer, arranged by the Pakistani Embassy in Kabul.

Deputy Minister of Information and Culture Ghulam Nabi Farahi, who distributed the certificates at a ceremony, said such programmes had been beneficial to Afghans and could bring the neighbours closer.

The two countries shared historical, cultural and religious bonds, he said, adding two Pakistani teachers imparted training to the course participants.

One of the teachers, Shafi Gul, said the participants were taught the basics of English language and computer. He promised to continue to offer his services for Afghan students.

A graduate, Abdul Latif, said the course helped him overcome the problems he earlier faced. "Such courses are general not well-organised. But it was a good course. I learned many things in a short time."
