Prof Santi Narayan Gosh, Director, IQAC, BUBT said, although the mother tongue is the best medium of instruction, English language is significant, because, we live in a global village.
Dr Gauranga Chandra Mohanta ndc, Project Director of HEQEP, UGC said that English Language Lab could help us tremendously to upgrade the English Learning Process in this University. He suggested teachers to care about the background of the knowledge and the script.  
Prof Md. Abu Saleh, Vice Chancellor of BUBT presided over the opening session. He said, students face some challenges to learn effectively. They cannot speak English properly.
This Lab can play a very significant role to improve the skill of the students. According to the Vice Chancellor, BUBT and World Bank funded this Lab under the supervision of ministry of education and University Grants Commission of Bangladesh.
 He said, in the lab, teacher can look after each student, which is not possible in case of the regular classroom. In a lab instructor can communicate with many students by pressing a mouse key in order to talk with students. It can help students in academic and practical life.
