SWOC analysis of the Department:
The strength of the department is the urge of the students to learn, to get acquainted with the subject and the co-operation of the teachers and the Principal for the development of the department.The college is equipped with a language lab where Spoken English classes are taken.
Fear about the subject among the students as most of the students has a wrong conception about the language.
To conduct cross-faculty courses and to offer choice short term courses like Certificate/Diploma courses .The college is already offering the students a certificate course in spoken English.
To educate the students and helping them to face any kind of job opportunities and to prepare the student to be well qualified to read and speak in English language.
