It provides students with technical tools to get the best samples of pronunciation of the languages taught. The electronic devices used in the lab will stimulate the eyes and ears of the learners to acquire the language quickly and easily. The lab’s collection is designed to assist young learners in the acquisition and maintenance of aural comprehension, oral and written proficiency and cultural awareness. It will not only help in strengthening the conceptual grasp but also promote accuracy and fluency in speaking the languages, besides taking care of paralinguistic elements.
