Our students are subjected to very frequent changes in medium of instruction. In the process the best they can do is to learn to read one of the languages. Majority is unable to understand what is written in the text. They memorise the text and recopy it in examination, which kills the basic aim of education. Most of the students studied in Urdu in colleges and universities while most books on different subjects are in English. They can’t understand it easily.
This language barrier caused lack of confidence among students who got education in Urdu. In colleges and universities they meet students of English medium schools who speak English fluently they lose their confident in class. Experts believe that students can learn very quickly in their mother tongue but in Pakistan we are running behind English language.
Because most of our students cannot understand English well, they just memorise it without knowing the meaning of the text. So education must be in our mother language so that students can easily understand it and also gain some knowledge, concept.
