ISU Language Lab
In many cases it is observed that many of university graduates remain linguistically deficient and poor communicators for which they cannot successfully compete in and contribute to different fields in the national and international arena. International Standard University (ISU), therefore, aims at providing an environment for the students' skills and capacity development emphasizing language proficiency, and sets up the ISU Language Lab under the Department of English. The Language Lab helps the students, providing language learning environment, accuracy and fluency in language so that they can meet pedagogical and professional needs. It also helps the teachers, for their continuous and professional development, be familiar with updated methods of and approaches to effective language teaching.
ISU Language Lab is well furnished with necessary technological equipment (computers and audio-visual options) along with adequate reading materials for the students to attain the desirable command of the four skills: Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. The students will be involved in various language practices: exercises, activities, and tasks. They will get opportunities including self-learning, oral presentations (public speaking and seminar), intensive and extensive reading, and visualization through videos. The students will acquire proficiency in speaking, communication, understanding and analyzing various texts and contexts. Their performance will be evaluated through continuous assessments like tests, presentations, and assignments.
The Language Lab offers the following services at no cost:
• Helping students overcome their linguistic weaknesses as remedial measures
• English Speaking and Writing sessions with one to one tutoring
• Listening and Reading Skills practice
• Helping the students with all types of English Language tests
• Use of computer equipment to facilitate language practice
• Helping the students with English, when writing coursework, thesis or assignments
• Thesis/paper writing referencing workshops
• Organizing workshops on public speaking, CV writing and job interviews
