With the ever-growing levels of interconnectivity and globalization around the world, the significance of immediate and appropriate modes of communication has been increasing very rapidly in this modern world. It is an undeniable fact that there is a need for a common language to communicate with each other. As English is a lingua franca, it has become imperative for all the educational institutions to improve communication skills as they are indispensable for any successful profession. The English language, in particular, has become essential in the lives of young people who aspire to advance their careers globally.
Keeping this in mind, Modern public school has set up a well equipped English language lab. The lab offers a result-oriented approached to improve the English of students with a number of interactive exercises. The entire course is designed as per the CEFR standards to ensure that students learn English as per the International norms. The programme has been structured to develop pronunciation, vocabulary and semantics of speech in an environment that is devoid of regional influences.
The use of the online English software product along with headsets and microphones is very useful for students, learning languages for communication. These interactive tools are designed to enhance not only language teaching but also class room grading and distance learning. The activities covered in the lab are phonetics, dialogue writing, speaking practices, listening practices, resume writing, role play and paragraph writing. These activities help the students to construct interpersonal skills and thus build a lot of confidence. This technology enabled language laboratory has the power to motivate and engage students through audio, video and different other language learning activities offering new paradigms for teachers and learners alike. Through this digital tool, teachers can easily track student's activities and notice what they do and how often they practice. Progress in student's learning can also be assessed continuously for giving additional support to them. The emphasis is laid on learning the nuances of pronunciations, stress patterns, intonation and accent to endow students with such accomplishments as would augment their oratorical skills and confidence to confront interviews and group discussions for various jobs and higher studies which would consequently lead to amelioration of their prospects for better placements and open up new vistas for them in the country and abroad.
