About the Program: The UG students of science develop their own approach to scientific writing and back them with explanations, theory and logical justification. Language Lab is a setting where students are given the free will to develop their own writing style based on regular practice. If a student, during the bench-science phase of her or his career, manages to turn into an effective researcher, then the same aptitude, especially a healthy skepticism and a belief that every problem has a solution, will make the student a better journalist.

About the Instructor: Ms. Jyoti More is the Coordinator Language Lab, one of the most advantageous facilities available on the campus of St. Xavier’s College, aiming at helping students acquire proficiency in advanced language and soft skills necessary for effective career oriented communication. She took over as a full time instructor in the academic year 2013-14 and brings along the professional expertise required for computerised and audio visually aided Language Lab due to her prior tenure with organisations like Google Inc. and All India Radio.

An academic community dedicated to the holistic education of future leaders who will demonstrate innovation in their professional competencies, integration in their personal lives and inclusion in their social contribution.
