The department of Languages has come to emergence right from the day when Sindhu Mahavidyalaya had been established in the year 1971. It’s a multi lingual department having English, Hindi and Marathi languages. The Department started working in the right earnest from the word go and took up the challenge of teaching these three languages to the students in a very systematic way so that the short term and long term aims and objectives of language teaching and learning could be fully achieved.
The Department ever since has been working hard to inculcate all the necessary linguistic skills of reading, writing and comprehending the taught languages. It is true that while teaching English, certain difficulties do occur as most of the students come from Marathi and Hindi medium background and school. However a well earned experience of the teacher helps us overcome these initially-insurmountable looking-difficulties in a few days after starting the process of teaching and learning.
The Department has five sanctioned posts of the teachers. Out of which at present four teachers are working, two of them teaching English and two Hindi. One contributory teacher to teach Marathi has also been appointed.
Dr. Pravin Joshi, Vice-Principal, is an M.A., M.Ed., M.Phil. L.L.B. and Ph.D. and he teaches English in Science Faculty. Mrs Leena Chandnani, M.A. (English & Psychology) with SET in English also teaches English in Commerce faculty. Dr Kamal Kishore Gupta, M.A. (Hindi, Linguistics and Sociology), M.Phil, Ph.D teaches Hindi in Commerce faculty whereas Dr.(Mrs) Sapna Tiwari, M.A. (Hindi & Linguistics), Ph.D. teaches Hindi in both Commerce and Science faculty.
The Department organizes various academic and extracurricular activities to achieve the overall personality development of the students apart from developing communication skills in them to the expected level. The Department in order to boost up the confidence level of the students to make them presentable and proficient in the competitive world of globalization organizes intercollegiate events like debate, narration, essay competition, song competition, rangoli competition, poster competition, quiz competition and mehandi competition. It is also with a view to developing competitive spirit and raising the confidence level of not only the students of Sindhu Mahavidyalaya but also the students from other colleges. The practice and the exposure that they get from the organization of such events add new feathers to their cap and more luster to their personality, a step towards metamorphosing them from ordinary to extra ordinary, from general to special.
The Department is committed to maintaining sterling quality of education as far as the teaching of languages is concerned. The Department believes in the fact that better linguistic skills amounts to half the success and has the lion’s share in the success of the students. So the department is sure that it will continue the same dedication, commitment and quality of education in future too with missionary spirit and zeal of an evangelist so that the goals of education are fully realized.
