The world is undergoing great many changes in recent times. There is a marked change over from the battle culture to friendship culture. Governments of all countries have willingly or unwillingly accepted the fact that only co-existence and friendliness and not confrontation can lead the world to eternal peace and prosperity.
Nations have become inter-dependent economically and technologically. Even the governments being run by the toughest ideologists like Chinese have opened the doors for other nationals in order to provide a better life to their own citizens and get a firm hold in the highly competitive commercial field for their own survival and progress.
In such a conducive atmosphere prevailing over the entire world, people of one country travel to other countries in search of better academic and employment opportunities . Companies of one country open their branches in other countries and the personnel of those companies are also transferred to those branches.
Due to increased money flow among the people, tourism industry is also witnessing a boom and travelling by people to different destinations has become commonplace nowadays.
These changes have brought about a need among the people to learn foreign languages and also different languages of the same country.
But learning a language other than one’s mother tongue is not that easy unless you are stationed in the particular place for a longer duration of time. But people can’t wait that long to learn a language. So they nowadays look for institutions where these languages are taught in a more systematic manner enabling them to attain at least a certain degree of fluency in a shorter period of time.
But unfortunately in India there is a mismatch between the number of institutions and the number of people opting for such language courses. Even the institutions which offer these courses don’t have effective teaching methodology, which means the students get frustrated and withdraw from learning.
Taking into consideration all the above factors, an institution was started a decade ago in the name of MITH, which is a short form of Mithran, a Sanskrit word meaning ‘friend’, to teach different languages through effective teaching methods.
