“Hinglish Pinglish English: What Makes Sense to a Learner?” A Panel Discussion on Regional Languages as a medium of instruction

With a multitude of execution problems and the diversity of languages, the medium of instruction remains a topic of impassioned debate. Teaching in the mother tongue fuels pride, but English is here to stay.

K. Rajput, Head – Department of Elementary Education, NCERT, New Delhi.

The Discussion, which focused on importance of regional languages and advantages of using them as a medium of instruction in schools was efficaciously moderated by Dr. Mohammad Rafi, Dept. of Education, Malerkotla, Punjab and was attended by more than 70 education Leaders, policy makers and renowned academicians from the region.
Concluding the panel Discussion, Dr. Madhu Chitkara, Vice Chancellor Chitkara University expressed her gratitude to all the esteemed panelists and academicians attending the event. Great ideas, visionary plans and effective education strategies can only be made when opinions are shared and discussed between various stakeholders of our society and the same was done here today. CLIL@India is a visionary project which aims to preserve the multilingualism in India and through thought provoking events like this, it aims to create and provide a learning environment to our students which truly makes sense to them, said Dr. Chitkara
