In Pakistan most of us have
been brought up by speaking "English". We mostly converse in English language
instead of our national language . We people lapse into English language during
our daily life conversation and we have been so much indulged into it that, we
can't get out of it. Is it a need of our society or our Complex of speaking
"In 2008 Chinese Government actually had to ask its Chinese public to learn the
basic of English to help in welcoming the World"
In past years there was not much concept of English language but now it has
become a trend of our society. I have experienced it when I had an educational
trip to "Taxila Museum". There were foreigners and all were speaking their
national languages and we all were speaking English. Suddenly a voice came, one
of them was saying "You all are Pakistanis then why you don't converse in your
own language?" That was very shameful for us. That day i really thought Do we
feel ashamed in conversing our own language?
Do you ever think about it? Thai speaks Thai, Francis speaks French then why do
we speak English?? Why we have a complex of speaking English?
Here, the people who are not good even in their own national language try to
speak English and pretend their selves in the higher standard crowd.
Sometimes I wonder where this trend has been started. It is going to ruin our
lives. "We" have made English language as a trend of our society. "We need to
eradicate the complex we have of speaking English.
I respect those Countries who value their sense of identity, culture and
language. We should make ourselves like them.
