The Language Lab was set up in 2012 at VESIT to improve the communication skills of the students through the use of various innovative techniques and strategies while using the advanced software available in the lab. To enable the students to attain this expertise in the use of language, integrated skills of ‘listening’, ‘speaking’, ‘reading’, and ‘writing’ was strengthened and reinforced through special sessions conducted by the faculty in charge to empower the students to use it efficiently and effectively in their daily lives. The sessions especially benefited students who lack competency in English language as it fostered confidence-building for interviews and intra and inter collegiate competitive events.
VESLit Circle, was established as an extension of the language lab, to give further impetus to students who have great love and interest in English language and literature. While the activities in the Lab focused on improving the communication skills of those students who required assistance at enhancing their competency in the language.
Since its inception in 2015, every year, VESLit Circle holds its Annual Literature Fest, The VESLit Week, which marks a week-long extravaganza, that includes online events like,
- Story writing
- Poetry competitions
- Poster Making
- One Act Play
- Mock parliament

This fest has become one of the most popular events in the institute, and probably among the very few bodies which have events held in collaboration with establishments like The Union Bank of India and The Times of India. The popularity of VESLit week can be witnessed by the huge number of students who participate actively in all the competitions. These events help the students to not only build their courage to speak in public with confidence and poise, but also develop their critical thinking and nurture leadership skills.
VESlang is another wonderful initiative taken to polish the English Language proficiency of the students this year. A dedicated team of alumni with Dr Geeta Ajit came together in November 2020 and had many brainstorming sessions to formulate a course which would correspond to the needs of the students. After days of discussion, a six-week training program was designed to meet the basic requirement to be selected by a company for employment.
