The Sardar Patel Vidyalaya (SPV) has recently inaugurated a language laboratory. It is the first of its kind in Delhi and will enable students to fine-tune their language skills under the supervision of qualified teachers.
The laboratory has state-of-the-art technology. It will enable students to read, listen, speak and write and thus, imbibe the different facets of language under a controlled environment.
The laboratory will cover seven languages, English, Hindi, Sanskrit, Gujarati, Bangla, Tamil and Urdu. It is equipped with a projector, smart board, sound proof headphones and 22 terminals to help the students.
It will also give the students an exposure to read and recited pieces in many Indian languages. Ease of assignments and a comparatively easy tracking of assignments would be an additional advantage.
Anuradha Joshi, principal, Sardar Patel Vidyalaya said: “Pronunciation, intonation and tenor would be the areas of focus . The students will be able to imbibe the skills of language learning in ways that are both unconventional and interactive. This will not only help students to better understand some of the languages spoken in our country but will also help in preserving some of the languages.”
