Should we promote people trying to learn English?Here in India study channel, I came across the rules and regulations, stating grammar and punctuation to be correct, as well as have seen posts been deleted stating improper or wrong grammar. Do you feel its high time we should actually promote people trying to learn English?
Lately in India, the language English has become a measure of intelligence, with so many spoken English institutes, and coaching centers, teaching English to so many people, including even people of older ages, it actually fascinates me to believe that so many people actually are in need to learn it. People feel themselves less confident if they don't know English.
I have even seen people degrading and making a mockery of people speaking wrong English. At the same time I have seen people helping others and correcting their English in absolutely gentle way. Visiting malls and cafes, is still a big dare to several people, because there, they would have to communicate in English, I have even heard people praising the other person's confidence just by their way of speaking English fluently. Even seen parents choose Private schools over Government one's just because private school's would groom the English of their kid better.
Just not denying that learning new languages is always beneficial and English in itself has made such impact in Indians. But with English lately transforming into ,a must in almost all sectors of life, do you feel there should be a platform where the people can try to write English as well as learn from others correcting their mistakes? Is English actually a measure of confidence and intelligence?
