Lounge is a 'cyber meeting place' for students and teachers from different fields of study to meet and exchange views in English on a wide range of topics and issues. Lounge is divided into several categories where students are free to create topics under each of the categories.

The following is the list of categories housed under Lounge:

  •  STUDENTS GUIDING STUDENTS (SGS)
