Imagine… a show that not only entertains but also teaches you how to communicate effectively in English! Beginning March 24, 2008, NDTV Imagine will give a new meaning to television viewing with the launch of "Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain", a unique new edutainment show that aims to draw attention to the nuances of the English language in an entertaining manner! Produced by Sidharth Basu's Synergy Adlabs, the show promises to appeal to the whole family. This show will air from Monday to Friday at 6:30 p.m. and at 11.00 pm only on NDTV Imagine.
This fresh, new show is set in a classroom of a varied collection of students. Teaching them the essentials of the language is Shernaz Patel, their teacher who is also a warm and understanding mentor. She not only motivates her students with the correct use of the language, but also explains situations to them from their point of view, so that they can truly absorb the lesson. Each of the students in this class hail from different parts of the country and from diverse social backgrounds like a salesman, a housewife, a business man, a working woman, a shopkeeper, a student among others. All of them are there to learn spoken English! Every episode will teach one lesson, followed by funny and entertaining acts that will give the show an enjoyable experience for the whole family. Each episode will culminate with a song, which will highlight the lesson for the evening.
Announcing the launch of this unique show, Ms. Shailja Kejriwal, EVP- Content, NDTV Imagine said, "NDTV Imagine aims to unify families with a range of programming that is fresh, distinctive and memorable! 'Nachle Ve With Saroj Khan'was the first show that added value to audiences who were open to drop their inhibitions and learn how to dance. Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain is our next attempt to enable audiences to communicate effectively in spoken English in the comfort of their homes, absolutely free. It will cater to all age groups, across all kinds of educational backgrounds and will instill a sense of confidence in them. This is a first-of-its-kind attempt by a GEC and we are quite sure that it will be appreciated by our viewers!"
Adds Shernaz Patel, who plays the role of a teacher in Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain, "I have never played a role like this before, so I'm very excited about this show. I love the concept wherein we are not only entertaining viewers but also assisting them in learning spoken English. I hope they enjoy the show as much as we did shooting for it."
Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain will debut on NDTV Imagine on March 24, 2008 and will air from Monday to Friday at 6:30 pm and at 11.00 pm.
