The Institute of Languages and Culture aims to promote Literature of all national “Urdu”, international “French, German, Chinese and English”, classical “Arabic, Persian”, and regional “Punjabi” languages focusing on the origin and development of different genres. Departments of all the above mentioned languages have been established already and now “Chinese” is also being offered to the students. The institute proposes to make the students comprehend, interpret and utilize the acquired knowledge in their lives. 


The institute intends to incorporate active communication skills with the grammatical structure of different languages taught to students. These students will develop proficiency in the language by using it in pragmatic situations and enjoyable activities. Awareness of cross-cultural communication will also be addressed as this is an imperative factor in any language learning. As the world has already become a global village, becoming familiar with different international languages and culture will facilitate the young aspiring female youth of LCWU to tap the international job market.

Message from the Director

Its one Centre where learning itself becomes an experience and the product is reflective of an informed, skillful and a responsible contributor to the world around.
