    School of Language and Culture is the most unique and creative school amongst the schools at the Sharda University. It has given me and my fellow classmates multiple opportunities, not only to showcase our critical and creative abilities in the field of literature but also in many other co-curricular fields such as art, singing, dancing, painting and many such others. Overall it has been a great experience to learn and grow under the guidance of the most experienced and eminent professors.

    Being a student of the School of Languages and Cultures, I got a chance to live a new way of life. This department gave me several opportunities to enhance my communication skills and to progress academically. Here I gained a lot of confidence, to which I was oblivious at the beginning. Extracurricular activities which are frequently organized tremendously raised my level of confidence. The faculty members are always supportive and encouraging and I am very grateful to them
