Due to the partnership, students will receive assistance in developing their English language proficiency on a worldwide scale, preparing them for the future with confidence – the statement said.
The collaboration creates a plethora of potential opportunities for students, according to Himanshu Gupta, Director of Education for the Government of the NCT of Delhi.
