Abstract: Preparing Gen Y students to be critical thinkers and effective communicators is more essential in today’s complex education environment. In addition to Life Skills, it is necessary and much more important for students to communicate confidently and effectively. Life skills for effective learning, successful career planning and development have the ability to reinforce and enhance knowledge in any real-life situation. There are several areas to engage students in the learning process and to verify that students have the ability to analyze, incorporate and apply their Interpersonal and Intrapersonal skills. The language laboratory is the ideal place to simulate listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. For this, the present paper proposes a mixed-method approach and consolidates the assessment by providing different methods of assessing Intrapersonal and Interpersonal Skills, Application Orientation, with the aid of English Language Communication Skills Laboratory and classrooms with enterprising theory teaching techniques for obtaining more precise and effective outcome-based results.
