Statistical analyses were performed using the SPSS 25.0 (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences). Results: Majority of responses indicated use of irreversible hydrocolloid in stock metal tray for making the preliminary impression. The selective pressure was the mostly used impression technique (78.3%). The most common material for the fabrication of custom trays was autopolymerizing acrylic resin (96.7%). All respondents border molded the custom tray prior to making the final impression. The final impression materials used were zinc oxide eugenol impression paste (73.3%), polyvinylsiloxane (11.7%), polyether (11.7%) and polysulphide (3.3%).

English language has been now hooked up as a language of world verbal exchange and a language of opportunities. A high diploma of talent in English and brilliant communication skills decorate students’ employability. The study discusses the problems of speaking skills among Bharathiar Engineering College students. Before the interference pretest has been conducted to know their problems in speaking skills using questionnaire. Based on an analysis of the questionnaire Collaborative learning techniques has been implemented in order to enhance students speaking skills. The techniques implemented helps students to enrich their speaking skills since it is a group work students find at ease and participate actively in order to complete a task. At the end posttest has been conducted using questionnaire as a tool where positive comments have been given by the students. Thus, Collaborative learning techniques upholds student learning and educational accomplishment.
