Below regular circumstances, when an idea is being taught in English in bodily school rooms, college students are free to ask questions and likewise focus on the identical in a language they’re extra comfy with for higher understanding. Thus, to keep away from making a barrier in on-line courses, the identical programs are being translated in Marathi.

As soon as the idea is known, then it turns into simpler for us to put in writing in English. Even when common lectures occurred, there are a couple of remedial lectures that are taught in Marathi for many college students who accomplished their commencement in Marathi. Equally, if the identical is given on on-line platforms, then it is going to assist us who come from rural backgrounds.”
