Abstract
Multimedia utilizes a combination of different content forms displayed or accessed using computerized or electronic devices. In Education, multimedia resources allow the user to go through a series of presentations, text and associated illustrations about a particular topic in various information formats. Multimedia labs not only help the learners acquire a foreign language but also allow them to give a complete makeover to their personality too. A lot of programs in these labs include group discussions, presentations, role plays, personal interview skills etc. Along with this they can sharpen their intellectual capability, enhance creativity, judge their approach to solve various problems and prune their leadership skills through this multimedia infrastructure. It also helps them develop confidence, competence and command over English language, thus making them a perfect professional.
