Though English is an international language, India had always been quite backward when it comes to its standard in English language. Not all schools have turned into English medium schools.
An NGO, which recently held a survey on English education in India said, "The standard of English education can be brought under control if children in India, instead of being taught English only as a subject, must be taught English throughout their academic curriculum."
The study was conducted by Pratham, a non-governmental organisation. The result said, "Though more than 4,40,000 children in India can access poor English education, their perfection level in the subject was only around 20% of the total population that can access English."
The report highlighted that there is an immediate need for the Indian education system to take initiatives to bring reforms in the way English is being taught across the country.
The fact is that the students, though studying their education in English language, are not able to read English terms in the right manner.
When compared to students abroad, Indian students lag far behind in understanding the level of English. Moderately blaming the teachers' efforts in Indian schools, the report said that way Indian teachers teach English should be applicable to the students.
However, the focus on quality of technique is also equally important as the quality of the teacher, states the report.
