August 4, 2022 04:18 PM


The Government College University Lahore is offering admissions to students in eight foreign and national language courses which include French, German, Chinese and Turkish.

Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr Asghar Zaidi stated that in European countries students often take gap year and spent a whole year engaging in a mixture of language lessons and cultural courses so as to improve their life skills, but unfortunately in Pakistan students who got the gap year due to supplementary examinations or other reasons could not engage in productive activities mostly due to a lack of opportunities.  

The Vice Chancellor said that the Language Communication Skills Courses were specially designed to focus on refining the students' communicative ability with emphasis on listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. He added that these courses would be taught through lectures, group discussions, extensive writing activities, simulations, audio-visual aids and student presentations.

Prof. Zaidi said that classes were scheduled in the evening, so that regular university students and professionals from different fields could also join. The Vice Chancellor said that the fee for these three-month language courses was kept highly nominal i.e. between Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 15,000 per language course, so that the maximum number of students could benefit from it.   

The last date to apply in the language is August 10, 2022 while the classes would commence immediately after 14 August vacations.
