Speaking at the ceremony, Vice-Chancellor Prof. Dr. Talat Naseer Pasha (S.I) said that the distance from the English language can be the biggest obstacle in the way of development because this language is rich in all kinds of inventions, innovations, modern technology and science. Therefore, we can safely say that proficiency in English language and teaching has become indispensable. He said that I hope that the said book will prove to be a masterpiece in terms of teaching and learning in English language, for which the efforts of the editors and the author of the book are commendable. Speaking on the occasion, Chief Guest, Chairman Chief Minister Task Force on Education Mian Imran Masood said that the negative attitude found in our society at a limited level towards the English language is condemnable. Today about one and a half to two billion people of the world speak and understand English language because they are aware the importance of it.
