LANGUAGE LAB


About Language Lab

The language lab is based on highly advanced LSRW skills based language lab software, "ORELL TALK SMART SOFTWARE" from Orell Techno Systems Pvt Ltd. The computer lab has 35 computers and 1 master computer for the instructor. Every student is provided with a lab workbook so that the student could be able to crystallize well what is demonstrated in the lab. Each practical is conducted in such a way that it first unfolds its purpose, thereafter, elaborates on its methodology and process, and then concludes with anticipated outcome of learning in students with hints in the end for evaluation parameters. All this is done with focus on three main points:

a) Making students grasp the content of practicals clearly ;
b) Making them perform in real time what they have grasped ;
c) Making them deliver skillfully in day to day life all that they have grasped and performed in their practicals.
