Communication & Core skills lab

"Language is the road map of a culture. It tells you where its people come from and where they are going.” – Rita Mae Brown

Good communication skills are indispensable for the success of any professional. Being able to communicate well is the most important factor when seeking a placement in a company or institution. Communication involves one’s ability to listen carefully so as to grasp the meaning and to respond in turn with apt words and clarity of pronunciation. The language laboratory plays an important role in this process.

NMIMS Navi Mumbai’s Communication skills and Language Lab is a state of the art studio which houses Advanced Computer Systems and Innovative products such as digital multimedia control, headsets, and microphones, the interactive response control, etc. which are very useful for students learning languages for communication.

NMIMS Navi Mumbai has a world-class Language Learning Programme - The Words Worth program tailored to the needs of learners of higher learning institutions. Structured through three levels, each level is packed with 70 to 80 hours of intense interactive training, through rich audio-visual content alternating between ILT and CBT sessions.

  • Enhancing verbal communication skills through free speech, role plays, activities and interaction, thus helping the learners become perfect professionals
  • Soft Skills to prepare learners for Campus Interviews (Interview Skills, Resume Writing, Writing Skills, Telephone Etiquette, Email Etiquette, Personal Appearance and Hygiene, Group Discussions, etc.)

Foreign Languages

As the world shrinks and businesses grow and expand to new reg­ions and countries, multilingualism adds another weapon to the students’ arsenal as they considerably improve their chance of getting placed in a multi-national company with cross-border operations. It is not necessary that students need to be fluent in all the languages. Even a rudimentary knowledge puts across the message that they are putting in an effort to understand another language and their culture. This makes the client happy and helps in building a strong customer relationship.

According to salary.com, people can earn five to 20 percent more if they can speak an additional language. Multilingual employees often earn more money as their role in the company is greater and they are in a better position to meet foreign clients and handle important projects. It increases their chance of being part of strategic global projects.

Employers are looking for MBA grads who are fluent in European languages such as French, Spanish, and German. There is no particular career where being multilingual helps the most. In a global village where jobs are cross-country and cross-functional, knowing more than one language will help increase career prospects

Research says that multi-lingual people tend to have a more logical and rational thought process as compared to monolinguals. Learning a foreign language also helps people filter out irrelevant and unnecessary information and help them focus only on important details.

NMIMS Navi Mumbai provides its students' opportunity to learn a foreign language – French or Spanish. Plans are on the anvil to introduce German and Mandarin Chinese. NMIMS Navi Mumbai has a leading-edge language software and excellent foreign language faculty to help students grasp and master the nuances of these foreign languages.
