There is a dire need of English Language Teaching Institute for the State of Telangana to impart teacher training programmes to English Language Teachers.
ELTI (English Language Teaching Institute) is a state-level institute for empowering English Language skills among teachers. 15 States across the Country have these institutions and are running successfully to strengthen English Medium Education in their schools.
