About

The inception of English Language Training Academy shaped up from the sheer love for the English Language, a love that is heartily shared by the founder members of the academy.

debbie_picDebarati, one of the founders, has been teaching and researching English Language in India for several years. She was a teacher of English in the British Council, Kolkata since 2010, now a freelance teacher trainer with them.

She brings in a lot of experience dealing with multilingual, multicultural and multinational learners. A frequent writer and blogger, she believes that exploiting a wide array of teaching approaches and experimenting with diverse methodologies enable learners to have an ownership of the language. She believes that learning an international language (English) gives learners the life skills and exponentially widens their opportunities and their grasp on life and other wonders, thus empowering them.

Debasish, a creative professional with experience in Advertising, Print, Web and Events, also jammed in with his share of the love which he nurtures in his campaigns and copywriting.

He believes language to be the most powerful form of communication that mankind has ever been endowed with, and having visions of giving back to the society, language stands the first priority for sure. His wealth of experience has led to the development of course content which are more relevant, more real-life with a creative edge, in a learner centered approach.
