English trumps regional languages for the young

from DNA India

India: Anuradha Devkatte, 21, a third-year MBBS student of Grant Medical College, has enrolled herself in an 'advanced English speaking course' at a Dadar institute. The Nanded girl had studied in English medium throughout but lacks the confidence to speak fluently. "Marathi prevails at home and in medical college. Hence, I've never had the confidence to communicate fluently with my classmates and teachers (in English). Moreover, the accent is also an issue," she says. Devkatte and her classmates study in a class of 15, which includes Marathi-, Gujarati-, Hindi- and Tamil-speaking people in the age group 20-45. They not only practise grammar and public speaking but also overcome their inhibitions and individual accents. more
