The English class by Balambika mam through phone was very useful to me. In my school, I used to escape from the sight of the English teacher because English was such a boring subject to me. But, this class was interesting. I bettered my reading skill and grammar knowledge. Today, I am trying to read and understand English story books. It is the impact of the English class in me.
