English Learning Center

The English Learning Center at Gandhi Mahavidyalaya provides opportunities for students to begin or continue the study of English and to receive additional language practice which is not included in the literature-based curriculum.

In January and Februrary of 2010, Susan Wallace and MaryLynne Evans organized and taught a five-week workshop for teaching English to current students at the college. The workshop was an enormous success and led to the establishment of the English Learning Center in 2012. The learning center provides support for English language development throughout the academic year, and it is not dependent on English-speaking visitors. The learning center is housed in a spacious classroom in Chandran Memorial Hall, with an assortment of desktop and laptop computers that are connected to the internet (up to five at one time) and are loaded with pilot language learning software. The learning center's program is a combination of direct instruction and independent practice on the computers.
