An hour of English a day with Asha!

There are 3 different classes.

  • Communication skills
  • Secretarial Communication skills
  • Sales-StaffCommunication skills
These are primarily to address the needs of Tamil staff working in various Auroville service and commercial units: to enable skill-building to be able to meet the needs of Auroville units, especially in these challenging times.

Attention Unit-holders of AV

  • Want your staff to answer your calls/emails/WhatsApp messages efficiently?
  • Want your staff to say the right things to your clients?
  • Want your staff to communicate on time?
Inform your staff and get them to sign up for Communication Skills ONLINE    

This 10-hour course is unlike any other course                                                                                                

  • It is bilingual (Eng/Tamil): your Tamil-speaking staff can now learn from a teacher who will use a comparative approach of learning the essential phrases in English for the workplace using Tamil for easier understanding.
  • It uses the “unlearning technique”: your Tamil-speaking staff can now unlearn incorrect phrases. We will provide them the right stuff (English with Tamil paraphrasing) instead of dragging them through long and complex study material.                                       
  • It offers an add-on module: basic telephone etiquette.

  • Basic reading and writing skills in English 
  • Individual workstations/mobile phones with good internet connectivity 

Even though these classes are oriented towards staff working in Auroville service and commercial units, they are open to anyone interested. 

  • We have a special discount for Aurovilians, Newcomers, Pre-Newcomers and Savi Volunteers. You will have to enter a coupon code on the Payments page.  

  • Students registered at schools and colleges outside Auroville also have a discount. 

  • Auroville Employees have a special discount as well.  They can email us directly, giving the name of their unit, or else they can request their unit holder to write to us for the Coupon code.
