Effective interpersonal communication is one of the most important factors to foster communal harmony in a country. This need is significantly felt by members of the Sri Lanka Army serving in Jaffna as well as civilians since they constantly have to interact with each other.

To respond this need, on a concept of Commander Security Forces - Jaffna (SF-J) Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe, various Army formations in Jaffna have arranged Tamil language classes for soldiers at respective places.

Meanwhile, at request of civilians in Jaffna, SF-J has organized Sinhala language classes for enthusiastic adults and students in Jaffna. One such course organized by the 513 Brigade at Uduvil for 17 weeks at Manipay Ladies’ College came to an end with award of certificates to those who successfully completed the course. Significant feature of the award ceremony was that students of the class themselves conducted the event and welcome speech and vote of thanks were delivered in Sinhalese language.
