Cuddalore – “Use your mother tongue for better relating, but use English for better living.” With these words, St. Joseph’s Seminary offered an “Intensive Phonetics Course” for initiation candidates of both St. Joseph’s Seminary and Don Guanella Bhavan. The young seminarians partook in this two-week course enthusiastically. Fr. Ronald, the resource person, handled the classes in an interesting and exciting way; covering the topics of syllabication, phonetic symbols, sounds, accent and rules for pronunciation. All the participants were enlightened by this course as witnessed by their renowned speech, dialogue and conversation. Guanella Bhavan initiation candidates departed on October 17th with fond memories.
