Pune:  The Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), Pune has appointed a full-time, resident English teacher to help students to communicate in the language.  The appointment has been made keeping in mind the cultural and linguistic diversity of the students at the institute.

Over 30 students from various batches have enrolled for the English classes which are being conducted throughout the day.
“This is the first time that FTII has institutionally responded to a problem that had long been swept under the carpet. It’s a huge setback to a student who enters this premier institution only to realise that the English language is coming in the way of helping realise his/ her ambition. 

Students from a non-public school or non-convent background or from  rural stretches often hit this roadblock. Our aim is to provide them a working knowledge of English free of cost,” Bhupendra Kainthola, Director FTII Pune said.
