As a contributor to the conference my paper titled 'Developing and Making Use of a Board Game to Begin Learning of English for Transition to Prescribed English Textbook in a Hindi Medium School: A Pedagogical Experiment' has been accepted by the organizers.

The board game was used to build the sight vocabulary of students for six words and recognition of letters therein.
