Theory and practical are two aspects. Traditional language teaching used to tackle the theory part only where as bksb has proven instrumental in learning language coherently and lucidly. Besides teaching essentials of business English, it further simulates the communication aspects of English teaching. bksb has fabricated the language for daily use as well as for the business world.” Prof. Mohinderpal Kaur - Communication Skills, BBSB Engg College “bksb is a very wonderful initiation by our college. As it is an online software, it’s neither a burden on teachers nor on students. It is a skill oriented program. It covers all the communication skills like reading writing and speaking. bksb includes reading and writing related exercises and activities. With the development of these skills the students automatically gain so much confidence and hold on language that they learn how to speak well and effectively. On the other hand, it is a really magical stick for teachers, as it enables them to teach English language to non-English students in a better and innovative way.” Asst. Prof. Loveleen Kaur - Communication Skills, BBSB Engg College
