1. Facilities And Resources
One of the main objectives of all our programs is to promote students’ independent learning. The Self-Access Centre (SAC), which is being expanded, is an excellent place to provide the opportunity for this. The SAC is open from 7:30 am to 7:30 pm on weekdays and from 7:30 am to 11:30 am on Saturdays. The SAC assists you to overcome your language and content area difficulties. You can spend your free time by reading books, magazines, periodicals and other reference materials. You can also have discussions with friends or sometimes with lecturers, listen to the radio or tapes, watch news or videos in English. The Teacher’s Reference Library (TRL) is for lecturers’ use only. And the MA section in the SAC is for MA students only.
DOE Learning Support Unit
DOE Learning Support Unit consists of a group of lecturers, from Department of English, who dedicate their time to provide consultation services and assistance to students. Currently, this unit organizes workshops of various academic topics to help the students to maximize their learning. Moreover, this unit also offers mentor programs for students who have low academic performance.
Internet and word processing are available on the ground floor (behind room 03 with reasonable fees.
Students and lecturers have access to a wide range of resources in our two Language Laboratories, which are funded by the Japanese government. These include video shows, slide and PowerPoint presentations, and listening- interpretation resources.
2. Using The Facilities And Resources
All IFL buildings have been maintained in very good condition. It is, therefore, very important that everyone take pride in the institute so that it can be kept in its present condition. It is expected that everyone using it will have respect for the property and consideration for others by looking after the building and its facilities. The following points must be observed:
Use the toilets which are assigned for your use. Certain toilets are reserved for staff and for female students only. Please show consideration for others by using the facilities properly and making sure that you leave the toilet clean for the next person.
Smoking is not permitted anywhere inside the building.
No spitting is allowed anywhere inside the building or on the terraces.
Students are not permitted to consume any food, even chewing gums, in classrooms. Food must be consumed in the canteen behind the main building of IFL (Building E).
Always use the bins provided for rubbish. Please show responsibility and consideration for others by keeping all classrooms and common areas clean and tidy. To achieve this, you must use fewer tissues at the canteen and not write, draw or paint anything on classroom or toilet walls, chairs, and tables.
Students are not permitted to park under Building E or in front of Building G. These areas are reserved for staff only. Secure parking for motorbikes is available behind Building B; and parking for cars is available behind Building A, in front of Building B, and behind Building C. If you use any other areas for parking, no responsibility will be taken for your vehicle and motorcycle/bicycle loss or damage. Please observe all traffic rules and follow all signs on the campus.
