Language Lab

Writers’ Studio houses the Language Lab designed specially for students learning English as a Second Language. We work with Instructor Led Training and Computer Based Training methods followed by practice sessions and evaluation. Digital learning is supplemented by an instructor who is available to guide the student in the practice sessions. The Lab is tailored to the needs of undergraduate and graduate students and is designed to run parallel to an academic course in communication skills and writing.

The Lab-offered course has three structured levels. These levels meet the language skill benchmark set by the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for Languages for Elementary, Intermediate, and Advanced level of language competency.  Alongside basic vocabulary and conversational skills, the course also trains students through role-play or public speaking opportunities, and in other soft skills such as email etiquette, resume writing, interview skills, and group discussions. Language skills are upgraded at the Language Lab from A1 to C2 level over an eight-module course.

Conversation Club

Conversation Club is an interactive forum for students to practise their spoken English skills with a dedicated tutor. The concept of this club is to arrange regular conversation sessions with students to discuss topics using prompts on various topics including current affairs, politics, history, culture, and more. The main aim of the club is to provide a platform for students to practise their spoken English skills in a congenial and supportive environment. The club will help students improve their vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, and critical thinking skills. With a dedicated tutor leading the sessions, students gain the confidence they need to speak English with ease and fluency.
