Language is essential for expressing ideas, opinions, views, and emotions. One of the essential qualities required today is the command over the English language. In other words, effective oral communication is required for success in life. This is made possible by an English lab. The main objective of this lab is to provide this facility to the student and to hone their skills.
Here at RIS, the Language Lab consists of a teacher module and a student module. The teacher module is provided with the control functions and the student module is provided with the facility to receive recorded lessons and to listen to the lessons and pronunciations. It is designed to enhance the overall communication skills amongst students including pronunciation and accent. The course content of the English Lab has been developed keeping in mind the difficulties that the students generally face.
In the lab, the student listens to the lessons pre-recorded by experts. Topics such as accent, rhythm, intonation, consonants and vowels are dealt with separately and extensively. This is followed by an exercise. After listening to the pre-recorded voice, the student can record his/her own voice and compare the correctness of his/her pronunciation.
In the teacher module, the teacher can design the lessons according to the need of the student and add new words or sentences for practice, communicate with the student from the teacher module, review the work of the student and maintain the record of the students separately and design student evaluation tests.
