Guwahati: Nagaland government and Nagaland University have joined hands to set up a centre for leaning foreign languages from Korean to Arabic and German.

The Centre for Excellence for foreign languages will be launched under a memorandum of understanding signed between the state government and the varsity on December 5.

CoEFL will offer comprehensive language learning programmes in Japanese, Korean, Spanish, French, German, Arabic and other languages from across continents. Its curriculum covers culture, work ethics, business practices and life skills.

As young people from Nagaland and other northeastern states emigrate for work to everywhere from Seoul to Dubai and Munich to Paris, the language programmes are expected to be a huge draw.

"The plan of Action entails the establishment of CoEFL, providing a 3 month certificate course for the first year and subsequently CoEFL will apply for accreditation from the University Grants Commission (UGC) to incorporate degree courses as a formal field of study with extended PhD facilities", said a Nagaland government release.
