MetadataShow full item record
There are three streams of education in Bangladesh, Mainstream Bangla medium, English medium and Madrasha medium (Kamol, 2009). English medium schools in Bangladesh provide a quality full and alternative private education in primary, secondary and higher secondary levels. It is a special kind of education system run by private ownership where the medium of Instruction is in English (except Bangla). These schools directly follow the British curriculum and syllabus (Haque, 2011, p. 185). Consequently, learners tend to face difficulties in terms of learning Bangla course in English medium schools. After doing an extensive literature review, very little has been found about the challenges that students face in learning the Bangla course. That means, there are very minimal research has been done on this area till now. This research project will try to explore the difficulties that learners face while learning Bangla language at English medium schools. Researcher will use both qualitative and quantitive research method in gathering data. Data will be collected from teachers' interview and through focus group discussion (FGD) with students to bring out a critical insight of the research area.
