NIIT unveils “English Plus Language Lab” - a world class school learning solution by NIIT Nguru

  • A revolutionary concept aimed at enhancing language skills 

New Delhi, September 11, 2015: NIIT, a global leader in skills and talent development, today launched state-of-the-art NIIT Nguru English Plus Language Lab, that aims at enhancing the English language skills of the students. Nguru English Plus Language Lab is a platform where comprehensive and interactive digital content catering to listening and speaking skills, is put to use in a stimulating lab environment.

NIIT Nguru English Plus Language has been launched with the objective to enrich the spoken English skills by active learning through extensive classroom interactions aided by technology. The program helps students to frame grammatically correct sentences, improve pronunciation and acquisition of vocabulary through integrated learning.

Speaking on the occasion, Ms Tulika Sinha, IBU Head, Individual and Chain Schools NIIT Ltd. said, "English Plus Language Lab is a breakthrough initiative by NIIT Nguru to help students learn the intricacies of English language. Proficiency in a language is built over time, through a process of cognitive learning and Interactive practice, hence English Plus Language Lab helps to build strong foundation for the students so that they can comprehend and use English language better".

Today, English has become the language of the elite. A recent study claims that only 30 % of the Indian population are able, to varying degrees, speak English—though only one third have some semblance of reading and writing aptitude. Hence the foundation level of the students has to be developed in order to have proficient English language skills.

English Plus Language Lab is a program designed for the school, that runs parallel to, and complements the school curriculum. There has been a keen interest among schools for this solution.  As it progresses through 8 levels of advancement, each module comprises 40 hours of intense language training, alternating between ILT (Instructor Led Training) and CBT (Computer Based Training) sessions.
