« on: June 17, 2010, 03:30:17 PM »
Dear All,

You would be happy to know, ELC is going to organize spelling bee competition for the first time of its kind for English Department students.

I am getting considerable positive response from my colleagues and students.

All my beloved senior and junior colleagues are kindly  requested to submit  their supposed words in this forum.

Thank you.

Umme Kulsum
