Abstract
Millions of people in India view proficiency in English language as a survival kit to achieve upward social and economic mobility, creating pressure for many to start learning the language right from schooling. However, the ground realities tell a different story as there have been many problems with the English language learning process in vernacular-medium schools of India. Not many people are aware of the hardships faced by the vernacular-medium students studying in Indian universities and other institutes of higher education. And not many people are aware of the agony of the young job seekers who had their schooling in Indian languages and could not acquire English well. This paper reviews the evidence of English language hardships faced by vernacular-medium students in India.
