CHANDIGARH: Punjab School Education Board today launched an online Punjabi learning website for teaching the language and promoting it across the world.
After inaugurating the website, state Punjab education minister Daljit Singh Cheema said that this website has been developed in collaboration with Punjab University.
He said that in the modern era of globalisation we must take full advantage of new technologies to promote our mother tongue across the world.

He said that it will also be very useful for NRI Punjabis who can now teach the mother tongue to their children without travelling anywhere.
The Minister said that this initiative was taken by the Education Department under a number of projects launched to promote Punjabi language dedicated to 50 years celebrations of Punjabi Suba.
He said that advanced technology has been used for Punjabi online learning in which audio-video assistance has been provided on website.
