Language plays a vital role in the life of every human being. In fact the significance of language in our lives is incomparable. It is not just a means of communicating one’s thoughts and ideas to others, but a tool for forging friendships, cultural ties as well as economic relationships. Throughout history, learned people have reflected on the importance of language in our lives.
Language aids in developing and grooming one’s personality. Learning a language is part of our knowledge, it becomes one of the key factors in competitiveness. In the advanced society of today, the basic knowledge of two or more language has become indispensable.
With globalization, people all over the globe communicate with each other and exchange ideas through the medium of language. Though technological advances have served as a medium for communication, one cannot deny the role played by language.
Keeping this in mind, the Language department has taken every effort to instill in the mind of students the importance of language.Ours being a Commerce College, students study language for only two semesters. Therefore it becomes all the more important that we create in them an awareness of the need for acquiring good communication skills.
The Language Forum is one such medium that creates opportunities for students to hone their language skills. The forum is a common platform for four languages-English, Kannada, Hindi and Sanskrit.
The Language Forum in collaboration with the Debate Union has been organizing various intra and inter-collegiate programs, the most noteworthy of them is the “Inter-Collegiate Workshop on Public Speaking.” This program is conducted each year with participants from local colleges.
The Forum fosters language learning skills through audio-visual aid, help of the Notice board, the College annual Miscellany-“Hope” and the bi-monthly newsletter- “CSI Bulletin” which gives ample scope for students to exhibit their literary talents.
Various literary Seminars and Talks by writers and literary scholars are held on a regular basis to cultivate and promote the love for languages.
