Vision & Missions
It allows the cohabitation of various learning techniques, be it individual or group learning. It serves the wills of Aurovillians, locals or guests to connect with another culture or stay in touch with their native language.
The multi-cultural, multi-national teaching faculty at the Laboratory will explore how teaching languages can cut across national, racial, regional and other divisions and foster Human Unity. The laboratory will thus make practical contributions towards reducing the dominance of any one language, and the development of a true unity based on diversity and mutual respect between cultures.
