Learning in English

In countries of the sub-continent and Central Asia, science is taught in English instead of their mother tongue. For many students it becomes very difficult to apprehend the subject. What do you say about this?

It is necessary to learn English as well as Urdu, but i think it is easy to learn science in English than Urdu,coz we can remember its terms because we are studying them since our birth.But remember this we should learn our history in our mother tongue. Berha Irfan

it is very unfortunate that as a nation we have the habit of copying any country which is progressing at the current time especially in terms of language... but spoken english can be improved by watching good movies , conversing with each other in it..... the mother tongue should be given its importance... but if Indians and Bengalis can learn english and progress why can't we????

And I ask why should Science be taught in your mother tongue and not in English? I mean English is an international language; it's a world language and around the world it is accepted as the medium of teaching and communication so I think all major subjects such as Science, Maths and even History should be taught in English. Why should we lag behind the world? When the whole world follows English, why not we?? Shumila Malik

Soha Suhail
Well, I think English is International language and it's the most spoken language (Although it seem difficult to us) so it should be given importance. As for as mother tongue is concerned, we can use it in our family, relatives, friends etc. but for the education, we need that language which is recognized all over the world and which we'll be needing in the future. When we'll go to USA,UK,Europe for higher education which language we'll use? We won't speak Urdu,Pashto,Sindhi,Balochi,Punjabi etc. over there! So it's important to learn in English, at this very stage so that we won't be having problem in the future. As you're talking about science, all science terminologies are in English. If we try to translate them even in Urdu, it becomes even more difficult than English. Soha Suhail

Hijab Mazhar
I don't think that English is necessary for studying and especially for Science. We just gain knowledge when we study, so language doesn't matter. And Science is the subject which has nothing to do with languages. And you are right, it becomes problem for students and I have many such students in my class. So as long as they study, it’s alright. On the other hand, English has become a standard in every field of education and professions all over the world. So it’s almost necessary to learn English too. But we should never lose our identity. English is English and our mother tongue is our mother tongue. So we should speak both of them, provided that both are necessar Hijab Mazhar

It is not necessary to learn english. However, nowadays studies in our school we are taught in english because of which we are forgetting our mother tongue. Many people think themselves as inferior when they come to speak english. It's a shame that we pakistanis are not concerned about these issues. In next years, english would be given much superiority than any other tongue. It's also true that interviewing the non-employers during job search are more inclined towards their english speaking potential. English should be learned in limits so as to speak it in different countries. Duaa Yousuf

Muhammad Umer
Though you may not be aware of it consciously, the fact is you have always had an interest in language. The day you were born you attempted to express your feelings and you've been trying to do so ever since. As you grew older the sounds you made developed into definite forms or words which were symbols representing your thoughts. But the question is, why you use your native tongue? To express your feelings! But what about other people? We need to grasp their feelings also. Secondly, every human being should learn a new language before he dies. you are asking, why? To extend your thoughts, off course! Every language has some distinct range of words which reflect their culture and civilization. To interact with those people, we have to learn their language. I think now should come to the main topic. It is one of our terrible thoughts that the language of Pakistan is Udru, no its only a national language. Not the official language. It was declared in the constitution of 1973 that the next government would take steps to declare Urdu as our official language but nothing happened. We use English in our offices, documents, etc. If anyone studies the science of this world, s/he would have to note that "its those nations who are prosperous who use their own language for their feelings" But wherever our authorities go , they use English exactly opposite to what Chinese, and Japanese do. Thirdly, It was said by a very big authority, "Acquire knowledge even it requires to go to China." (Prophet Muhammed S.A.W.) But if you ponder a little, you will get to know that if someone really act on this order, he would have to go to China and try to understand what the Chinese teach him. How? off course by learning their language. We cannot force them to teach us in their language. So today you should better replace it for America (although people hate that country), and then when you are an authority yourself, change the rule. "To change a rule, follow it! reach to its top, then declare it wrong." Muhammad Umer

assalam o alaikum.You all are right in away but think about this fact that if we will not learn english,which is an international language how we will be able to interact with other countries for communication,business or for any thing else.History is testimony that many countries were occupied by their enemies and the main reason was that they could'nt understand their enemy's language and in their own country newsletter of other languages were printed and the paper was against the country but they do not know because they don't understand their language.Although mother tongue is also very important because it is our identity.

@Salik Khan. I would say just one thing."Future is created by man's own hand" :D.You cannot prevent water saying future will drink cola ! ;p.If that happens(English; the Future), then another round of losing our identity will take place. Why do you plainly follow the western ideas? Do you have any thought yourself? @Fabayha, I never said we should prevent English and learn Persian. I said why English is? You people are giving the answers based on the current situation not from which this situation originated. English IS SPOKEN. English IS SPOKEN. English IS SPOKEN.I ask WHY WHY WHY.I talked about past and you people say that we can not learn Persian. Try to understand what I am saying. Let me tell you 70% of your classmates fail bcoz they don’t know English well."Changing oneself can change the whole destiny" Mohammed Waleed

@Salik Khan.I am not talking about the persian language today.If you just read history, Persian WAS the main language of WHOLE sub-continent.Just after the British arrival, things changed.And not only in linguistic matters, but in other matters too.As for your science thing, learning or using languages for debates and discussions wont do any good.If geniuses wont understand English, then(like even NOW)? @HBN Princess You just changed the whole topic.Its not about religion.Currently, we are talking about studies.If you talk about religion, then definitely learning more languages will help.But we are talking about Studies now :).And for the history thing, WHY ONLY HISTORY is all I am asking.Wont our mother tongue in Science give us more freedom? You are right about it.But freedom is not achieved by language.Its achieved by deeds.I can bet that I understand history equally in all languages if I understand all of them(languages).I am not trying to support English either way, but all I am trying to say is "Teach everything in same way". Correct me if I am wrong :D Mohammed Waleed

@Mohammad Waleed!It is true that every language delivers the same message but u can see wid the other point of view that learning more lang. will help us to spread ISLAM is that true and as the history subject considered so, I want to tell u that we should study history in that lang. in which we see dreams and in which we think to learn more and more to understand perfectly.one other thing is that in other languages we r limited we have limited things but in our mother tongue we r free!!!!!!!!!!!

@HBNPrincess, Why only History? In my view, Language has nothing to do with subjects(or any subject). Education does not involve the words we learn but the concept we learn, the knowledge we get.Infact, I think all the subjects should be taught in one language.Either English,Urdu,Hindi,Bengali,Chinese or African.Every language will deliver the same thing.The thing which should be thought more is why only "English" is made compulsory.Before in the whole subcontinent, Persian had the status what English has today.
