Orientation Program Conducted in ELCS Lab by the Faculty of English in March 2011



English is a subject taught in the first year of Four Year Engineering course. The students are earlier exposed to traditional Intermediate/+2 level syllabus in English, which consists of selected prose lessons, poems, grammar and composition. Fifty percent of EAMCET qualified students are from rural background and vernacular medium and these students’ general proficiency in English is average. They need to mprove their language skills (LSRW), study skills and communication skills in order to justify their roles as professionals in this competitive world.

Keeping the necessity and importance of developing language skills of Engineering students in mind, the syllabus of English for first year & third year Engineering students has been modified and restored as per the requirements of the present situation. In this new approach, all the four skills involved in learning a language viz., Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing are developed through various tasks in theory and lab sessions. By working through the activities, students both fluent and less fluent will be able to improve their effectiveness in using English in reallife situations especially in their chosen profession.



The use of language laboratories in teaching English is relatively new concept in our country. Language Lab, a contribution of technology to language teaching, has rendered teaching of English language more successful, more rapid and more interesting. In the present age of nformation Technology, language forms the basic aspect in Science & Technology. Science can be learnt as a subject whereas the art of communication has to be practiced as a skill. Even Gold Medalists miss some of the best chances due to lack of good communication skills and hence knowledge and communication form the two sides of the career.

In order to learn skills, adequate exposure of the language and practice is very much needed. This is possible only in the language laboratories which assure a sense of privacy to the learner and function as self access study center. In addition to this, authentic learning materials are carefully designed and distributed to students for individual, pair and group activities. Skill-oriented activities are performed in the labs to develop language and communication skills of the students.


Globalization has brought in numerous opportunities for the teeming millions, with more focus on the students’ overall capability apart from the academic competence. Many students, particularly those from vernacular medium, find that they are not preferred for the jobs due to their inadequacy of communication skills and soft skills despite possessing sound subject knowledge and technical expertise. Keeping in their pre-employment needs and career requirements in view, the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences established the State-of- the-art Multimedia English Language Labs.

The Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) lab has the capacity of 60 workstations apart from two Instructor workstations.  The software used in language Lab aims to familiarize the learners to the nuances of English speech sounds, word accent, sentence accent, rhythm and intonation, to neutralize the influence of the regional accent and to bring about a consistent accent and intelligibility in their spoken English.
