Introduction
With little or no access to quality English education, the rural youth demographic in India is barred from equal opportunities in higher education and professional employment. In the absence of skilled teachers in schools, combined with an English-illiterate environment, rural students are unable to read, write or comprehend basic English, leading to a high drop-out rate from schools and colleges. To unlock opportunities in higher education and employment, Pranil Naik has designed a unique, plug-and-play model which democratises the teaching and learning of English for first generation learners in rural areas.
