The English and Foreign Languages University

The English and Foreign Languages University is situated in Hyderabad. It was founded in 1958 as the Central Institute of English (CIE).  In addition to regular teacher training programs, CIE set benchmarks through its various conferences, refresher courses, and syllabus design ventures. The Institute also initiated indigenous English education programs by producing school textbooks and later radio lessons.
Gradually the Institute extended the scope of its goals, viz. to improve the standard of teaching of English; to undertake relevant research; and, to introduce foreign languages. It was renamed the Central Institute of English and Foreign Languages (CIEFL) in 1972 and three major foreign languages were added which are – German, Russian and French.
