Language and Communication Skills:
James Humes, Presidential speech writer once said, “The art of communication is the language of leadership”. True to his words, we in Sethu Institute of Technology have given more emphasis on communication and we term it as an art. The students are being trained from the first year through Toast Masters club. The basic concepts of language skills such as active listening, reading skills, speaking and proficient learning are being completely taught to our students.
The highly qualified and experienced faculties of our college are imparting these qualities to our students so as to enhance their employability. Communicative English is important as it can help the students to see values in their studies, in a meaningful way. The Training and Placement cell strengthens the students’ communication skills by offering courses like Speak Better, Write Better and English for Competitive Exam.
We also teach foreign languages like German, French and Japanese. The reasons for learning a new language are varied, but the importance of learning foreign languages is universal. It will always benefit the students for their future endeavors.
