BCdas Sir,

I'm also busy with 12 duties. you might get 'off' duty in some slots. But I'm not getting any. In the previous semesters, specially when u r in the xam commitee, u probably noticed that I had the duties both in Science faculty  & English Dept. 

Short-cut method is not always good & truly speaking, there's no short-cut for learning English. you'll get lots of 3-month course in English. From that course u may learn only the basic of the language. If u want to be skilled in English..u've to go through a regular practice.

Thanks Bidita for making a contribution in this topic!
