The English Language Lab
The English language Lab has been used to facilitate classroom engagement and interaction via computer-based exercises and activities to maximize proficiency in language components (vocabulary and pronunciation) and in language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing).
The English Language lab provides a diverse experience from the conventional system of teaching and learning English language communication skills and offers advanced features such as authentic recorded materials, spoken by different native speakers, that expose the students to the near – ideal pronunciation of native speakers.
Facilitated Self Learning:
The learning is teacher assisted at the outset with the teacher introducing the course materials and then it proceeds to self-guided independent learning where the students can individually focus and practice on language skills that they are less proficient in.
The English language lab allows students to reinforce the subject modules learnt during their classroom lectures and practice the tasks/exercises proactively through interactive activities.
Monitoring and Evaluation: Teachers get to monitor student lab activities and receive instant reports on their performance in tasks/exercises which can be utilized to customize the teaching and learning activities to maximize language competence in the lab and in the classroom.
The Lab Staff is available to help you with Language Lab resources, not other classes or activities.
The lab will close during college holidays.
Students are not allowed to keep visiting, loud talking or disturbing others who are studying and practicing in Lab.
Internet usage should be restricted to class work assignments and activities designed to enhance language skills.
The lab can also be used for independent student work; users must abide by the lab’s schedule & rules.
