Department of Languages & Literature: Laboratory Infrastructure
In tune with one of the objectives of SMVDU i.e. to provide education and training of excellent quality both at undergraduate and post-graduate levels, School of Languages has set up software based Language Laboratory System. The prime objective of the lab is to facilitate efficient teacher-student interaction, correct phonetic accents and to develop their effective communication skill in the present world of Global Speak. Classes meet in the Language Lab part of the day, but there are regular "Open Lab" hours, too.
Students can utilize the Language Lab's pronunciation and TOEFL preparation software more quickly and easily than before. A growing collection of audio, video, and printed materials is available for use, too, complemented by institutional-grade audio-visual equipment.
