Digital Language Lab
A state-of-the art digital Language Lab runs in the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences. This lab, inaugurated on 15th May 2019, caters to the language requirements of the students at basic, intermediate, and advanced levels. The students can improve their grammatical, vocabulary, and technical writing skills. They can also hone their listening, speaking, and pronunciation skills.
The language lab has 30 desktops installed with “Words Worth language lab software” and AV equipment. It has a 65 inch touchscreen connected with instructor console unit. The software offers interactive training through rich audio-visual content alternating between Instructor Led Training and Computer Based Training sessions. Through such sessions, students can acquire vocabulary and language structures for participating in day to day communications. They learn to use grammatically accurate sentences while speaking confidently. They enhance their verbal communication skills through free speech, role plays, activities, and interaction. The lab is air-conditioned and sound-proof to make language learning experience comfortable and distraction-free.
The language laboratory contributes to the administration of a credit course on Language (Course Code: HUP100) to the first year B. Tech students. The course is designed to run parallel to the Basic English and Communication Skills course and Advanced English and Communication Skills Course of the academic syllabus for the 1st and 2nd Semester.
The lab envisions offering enhanced active use of English language to students in comparison with traditional classroom teaching. The course administered in the lab aims to help students for whom English is not their first language find proper placement. It intends to make both language teaching and learning fun.
