It is complete lie. many people I see say english is now world's Lingua franca so English medium education in India will open world wide opportunities for Indians, as it will make Indian students more fluent in English, IMO it is biggest BS. 1) Medium of education in Zimbabwe is English, so if supporters of EMS's logic was true then Zimbabweans would have gained upper hand in grabbing jobs, but what we see? Zimbabwe is very poor country, knowing better English did not help them, mean while in Vietnam where MOI is Vietnamese they are in better position than Zimbabwe, so it finally stands? English medium education did not help Zimbabwe. 2) If knowing English gave people upper hand so much as EMS supporters claim, why are there so unemployment problem in English speaking countries? In US, Canada or NZ? Is not american's mother tongue English? So naturally as per EMS supporter's logic(knowing English gives upper hand in having job) there would be no unemployment problem in US, but reality is very different. What will they say on this? After all Americans are more fluent in English as it is their mother tongue. Is not it? Still so much unemployed. 3) More ever if any Indian wants to have job in in Brazil, then hence Brazil's language is Portuguese so knowing English will not work here much. So knowing English will give job every where is proved false again. 4) Average Indian does not need to know good english(not all are going to work in iT center, are they?), all they need to have is basic sense in English. So when these are facts then why are Indians emphasizing too much on english medium when it's over all importance is highly exaggerated? Some Indians are really so much English ass licking that they are incapable to use their brain.
