Wishing you all a happy new year 2009!
It is like a dream coming true for India as we can see a lot of educational
institutions focusing on the importance of English as a common language.
Before in the past it was very hard for people to study english or study in english. English was a language that was not in the reach of normal people and it was just a dream for the people below the poverty line.
Now when we see the present day truth. Most of our country's communication, study, etc is done in english. Even the people in the villages can send their children to study in english medium school because of the many schools bringing the level of study to be easy.
During the rule of the british people our fore fathers have suffered a lot but still we the present and the future of India enjoy a lot of benefits from them. They have given a path for us to bring a new shine in India. Many of you might not agree with me but if we think deep the truth never dies.
The world's leading communication system declares the british english as the best English. So we Indians have that rooted in us by the british people in their rule in India before independence.
So I am urging everyone to take it is as a challenge to improve in English if you want to face the growing challenges in the world.
You can learn or improve your English skills by the following ways:
1. Reading an english news paper or books.
2. Try to communicate in english even when you are wrong.
3. watch the english news and programs.
4. Seach for oppurtunities to use your english.
5. Join a spoken english course.
Hope this small tips will help you in improving your english. Finally giving you a good website in the link below for you to practice your english skills.
Happy New Year to you also and best wishes.
You are so right Spandana that English has become such an integral part of our daily lives that now we can't deny or do without it. We Indians by nature follow the British English which as you had rightly said is given to us by the legacy of years of British occupation. We have to learn any other version of English. Though most of us learn B. E. too but it's so deep rooted in our own language systems. Imagine words like (postman, torch, doctor, rickshaw, bus, engine, telephone, train, etc.) are so part of the speakings of even an uneducated village folk. English had left long ago but English stayed and is here to stay for long and for good.
Thanks for the tip.I am sure this will help many.
we cannot live without speaking English. people at present look down those who talk in other languages. It is necessary to learn a good English and to have a good command over it. It is important for international communications also.
