These labs cater to the requirements of students of all faculties from different rural and urban backgrounds. Qualified college teachers have been specially trained to teach in a neutral accent with provisions for British and American accents to aid students to be acquainted with respective accents.

Mission :

"English is destined to be in the next and succeeding centuries more generally the language of the world than Latin was in the last or French is in the present age." These were the words John Adams, U.S. President. Today we see them materialised as English which has in fact become the world language.

We, at Dr V R Godhania English Language Lab, are committed to generate in students competence, confidence and creative attitude towards the language in order to enable them to meet the world as mighty equals.

Goals :

The Digital English Langauge Learning(DELL) paradigm has undergone a complete modification in today's scenaro. The liberalization of the Indian economy has ushered in all kinds of reasons to learn the English language. In this direction, the Office of the Commissioner, Higher Education has undertaken a major project of establishing state-of-the-art Spoken English Language Laboratories across Gujarat. The nodal agency in this venture is Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar Open University.

The aim of these fully computerized, modem laboratories is to make students English proficient and therefore open up a whole new spectrum of job opportunities for the youth of the state. These labs are a quantum jump towards achieving Global Employability.

Benefits :

Today, with the rapid expansion of service sector, job opportunities in the state have increased considerably. Call centers need employees with effective communication skills; multi-nationals require marketing staff with fluent English, Medical Transcription Centers, IT, Mass Medium Insurance Sector, Retail Management are all on the look-out for persons with reasonable English communication skills. The main thrust of these laboratories is functional English rather then literary English, hence the major gap between English proficiency and employment is proposed to be bridged.
