He encourages the students to shed their shyness and start using the international language, English. The speaker asked the students to pronounce the words correctly. Further he motivated the women Engineers to master any one of the foreign languages to survive in this competitive world. The speaker also invited the students to create opportunities to talk in English wherever they go. By quoting some anecdotes from his life he drove home the strategies to learn another language. His valuable speech was a feast to the ears of the spell-bound audience.

Doing the Right Thing

Making Ethical Choices Based on the Six Pillars of Character

Character Club
  1. Have I thought about the way my choices are likely to help or hurt other?
  2. Am I living up to the ethical principles of the "Six Pillars of Character", even if I have to give up other things I want?
  3. If I cannot find a way to live up to one of the Six Pillar principles without violating another, am I making the choice I think will be best in the long run?
