Angreji Kendra

Introduction

The C N Angreji Kendra (CNAK) was established in 1999, exclusively for the students of C N Vidyavihar. The Kendra was established with the vision of creating a generation of students who are equally fluent in both the languages – in other words, students who are good at Gujarati, in which they learn, and can also handle English with ease in real-life situations. More than 1200 students are trained every year at the Kendra. So far, only C. N. students, their parents and the C N staff members were eligible for admission to the Kendra. From June 2013, the Angreji Kendra is open for everyone who is interested in brushing up their English skills.
