SBIOA Institute Offers Conversational English, Hindi, Tamil Diploma Courses by Correspondence
Communicating properly plays a vital role in creating the first impression. More so in the Indian context, where communicating fluently in English or Hindi takes you farther ahead career-wise. For those seeking jobs in most States in the country, knowledge of Hindi is an added advantage. Today, opportunities are aplenty for people who have a good command over Hindi and English.
Keeping these in mind, the State Bank of India Officers’ Association (SBIOA) Institute, Chennai, has been conducting courses in spoken Hindi and spoken English through correspondence.
