Shillong, March 29: Vice- chancellor of The English and Foreign Languages University Prof E Suresh Kumar called on Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma at his office to discuss on the intervention from the State government to make the university available for the students of Meghalaya and the Northeast in general.
Prof Kumar said that the Central University, which has its campus in Shillong, was not used to its maximum as fewer students from the State have enrolled in the university.
Prof Kumar discussed with the Chief Minister on including training and orientation programme for the teachers of Meghalaya in the university.
The Chief Minister suggested the vice- chancellor to start courses on foreign languages particularly Japanese and Mandarin, which will benefit the students of the region.
“These languages have vast scope and our youth can take advantage of such courses,” Sangma said.
The Chief Minister said there is a great opportunity for the youth of Meghalaya as the State is coming up with various projects with Japan based companies, and if the young people of the State learn the foreign languages it will be an advantage for them.
