Opinion: People give importance to the English language to assess individual talent

While giving the presentation in the college. My friend pronounced some word incorrectly in English. The teacher said,“Illiterate, go and ask your brother’s child how to pronounce it”. I think the main aim of language is to communicate, it doesn’t need to be perfect. Even we are not perfect in our own native language.

Why people give important to the English language to assess individual talent? Do you think it is good to give more importance to the English language?

I think giving importance to certain language other than mother tongue depends upon the person’s attitude towards the language.
I guess most of the Nepalese regard English language as difficult to learn and as a language providing opportunity so a person speaking English is given special status.
