Language Lab

Good communication skills are indispensable for the success of any professional. The English language, in particular, has become essential in the lives of young people who aspire to advance their careers anywhere in the world.

Language learning is not the same as learning any other subject. It is not confined to writing an examination and getting a degree or award. The four skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking have to be practiced. Being able to communicate well is the most important factor when seeking a placement in a company or institution.Communication involves one’s ability to listen carefully so as to grasp the meaning and to respond in turn with apt words and clarity of pronunciation.

The language laboratory plays an important role in this process.Our Language Laboratory in houses Advanced Pentium Computer Systems and Innovative products such as digital multimedia control, headsets and microphones, the interactive response control, etc. which are very useful for students learning languages for communication. It is very useful for assessing students' speech & provides students with the technical tools to get the best samples of pronunciation of the language. The electronic devices used in the laboratory will stimulate the eyes and ears of the learner to acquire the language quickly and easily. The laboratory’s collection is designed to assist learners in the acquisition and maintenance of aural comprehension, oral and written proficiency, and cultural awareness. It offers web-assisted materials and videotaped off-air recordings in the target language.

The laboratory provides a facility which allows the student to listen to model pronunciation, repeat and record the same, listen to their performance and compare with the model, and do self-assessment. It gives every learner of any language freedom to learn at their own pace; it is flexible and does not necessarily require a teacher all the time. At the same time, the teacher provides assistance individually and collectively.
