Manufacturer Description

Language is closely linked with a person's socialization. It is something that develops in a community. The culture, political thought, and sociological dimension of people living in a group have a direct relationship with the language bearing on the language they speak. That is why language is never regarded as something neutral, and the medium of instruction used in schools has far-reaching implications. It can facilitate the social, cultural, and intellectual development, or it can hurt the capacity to learn. Unfortunately, factors other than these obvious ones have determined the language to be used to teach a young child in Pakistan. The failure to look at language as a crucial component of education per se has resulted in our failure to spread literacy and learning in the country.

Can we reform education in Pakistan using any language? No, says the author, who argues her case from a young child's perspective. Since the first edition of this book, a lot of research has been carried on this subject and should certainly create more awareness among educationists and policymakers, as well as parents. The author proposes the roles to be assigned to the mother tongue, the national language, and English, the international language of the day.
