OBJECTIVES

A majority stake holders who learn English hail from a rural background. Most of them are first generation learners. As a teacher of foreign language, our priority is to create an environment where they are exposed to listening to English.

Language activities to improve learners’ speaking skills are planned and executed in both English Language Lab and also class rooms. They are motivated to speak in English in campus and hostel too.

In addition to the departmental library, the students are encouraged to utilise the college library to help them improve their reading skills and comprehension levels.

Students are engaged in various tasks such as notemaking,report writing, letter writing expansion of an idea, paragraph writing and so on  to improve their writing skills.
