MetadataShow full item record
Students are encouraged to speak in the Bangla language at the school premises. Students are losing their interest in speaking Bangla and in Bangla language as well. Hence it is important to know the reason for losing interest day by day. This study was intended to explore the current practices of the teaching-learning method of the Bangla language in English medium schools. This study followed a qualitative research approach and with relevant collected data through interviews and observation. The interviews have conducted with three teachers & three parents, and three classes were observed of different grades in the primary section of English medium schools. The findings of the study indicated that there are some reasons students lose their interest in the Bangla language, such as the medium of instruction mostly in English, lack of encouragement, less weekly classes are allocated for Bangla language and lack of cultural attraction also leads students to learn Bangla language in advanced level. Though English has become the most dominant language and the students of English Medium schools of Bangladesh are excessively fond of English. Therefore as Bangladeshi, learning Bangla as a mother tongue is more significant for the Bangladeshi people.
