Students learn better in their native language.

“I don’t think knowing English makes you more intelligent or bright. It is a means of communication like any other language. But the craze for one language should not be at the cost of our identity that is defined from our mother tongue.
As I am in the profession of teaching since 35 years, I can very well say that students learn better in their native language as it is the most natural way for them to learn. Even teachers can express and explain their thoughts and ideas in a better way in native language. It also helps in building a strong foundation for a learned and a well informed child,” explained the Principal in great detail.
Nelson Mandela had rightly said,
“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart”.
