Avinashilingam International Education Center inaugurated | Coimbatore News
Coimbatore: Inaugurating the Avinashilingam Center for International Education (ACIE) on Wednesday, Eric Perrotel, French-language cooperation attachÃ© in Chennai, urged students to develop multilingual skills.
Emphasizing the importance of French as a global language, Perrotel said ACIE will serve as a link between Indian and international culture. âStudents should see international mobility not only as a matter of learning a language, but also as a way to experience another culture. They do not need to master European languages ââto study in Europe, especially in France. Most of the programs are taught in English. Studying in overseas countries is much easier with a scholarship these days, âhe said. âUp to 1,000 French companies are based in India and are looking for Indian students who have had experience in France.
The center, launched on the occasion of International Student Day, will facilitate networking with foreign institutions to set up collaborative student exchange programs, a university representative said. It will create research opportunities for students and teachers, in addition to offering diplomas, certificates and short courses.
ACIE will shine as a center for students to develop their skills, adapt to multiculturalism and multiple languages, and add values ââin the direction of research and development and employment opportunities, said Archana Thakur, University Grants Commission co-secretary, main guest of the event.
