Launched as an innovative project in June 2009, the Centre for Foreign Languages was started in order to cater to the compelling requirements of the present fast-moving world and its multi-linguistic links. In this era of globalisation and commercial tie-ups, knowing a foreign language is always an asset which gives one the required edge and enhances the job prospects. Apart from the business exchange, there is also a growing need to translate scientific and technical documents, and of course, famous literary works from foreign languages. In the world of music too, there is an urge to understand the wordings of many songs, specially from the
Arabic and Latin American side. Films too need to be dubbed often.
