I am concerned about the standard of English in our country.
Even with the implementation of the teaching of Maths and Science in
English, I do not see any difference in the English used, especially by our
young. I would like to suggest a few steps to raise the standard of English
What needs to be done, first and foremost, is to make it compulsory for
students to pass the English paper in all government examinations. Then only
will people take the language seriously. In schools too, the number of
English periods per week should be increased. Ideally, students should have
English lessons every day. If we are short of English teachers, perhaps we
should consider hiring native speakers to teach the subject. I am sure that
there are many wives of expatriates here who are capable of teaching the
subject. Besides that, students must be encouraged to make reading a part of
their everyday life. Besides reading English books, they can also watch good
English programs on television.
I think more needs to be done to bring English back to its former status.
