    English is our secondary language and it was the medium of instruction starting in 2nd grade. That was during my time but now it is our native language that is mostly used in the classroom. Anyway, I have noticed that our teacher would allow us to talk regardless of the mistakes in grammar. She wouldn’t touch that subject of correcting the student during the recitation. But expect the issue to come up in the succeeding days so that we learn by reviewing our own grammar mistakes.

    Schools encourages the development of conversational English of students. Students are often reluctant to speak English because they lack confidence and fear that they may be corrected by their teachers. In order to help them , teachers accept descriptive English , wherein students are allowed to converse in English without checking too much of their grammar.

    It is always best to encourage the student to speak good English grammar. It will enhance their knowledge and be able to apply what they have learned. This also help to boost self confidence. Educators should require student to speak appropriate language during the discussion and correct them in a good manner. Sometimes students are reluctant to participate because they feared for correction and embarrassment. A nice and friendly discussion is good environment for a child to learn.

    English is a universal language and mostly in school we use it, but we also have our mother tongue language. We usually use it in our communication. So I think using that two in school are good in order to explain well and to express our feelings meaningfully.

    While I agree but at times you may bring a new thing for conversation to test what the learners know. This will encourage learners to move ahead of the teacher.

    I do encourage the student should learn English because English really is the international language, also a bigger part of the world is using this language,
     

We believe a good thing should be shared
