Write a Letter to Your Friend Informing Her of Your Success in a Debate Competition
25 May, 2015
It was very nice of you to have written to me. You will be glad to know that I got the first prize in the debate competition in English in our college on the topic “Importance of Learning English in our society”. Let me briefly tell you about what I said there.
English is an international language. Most of the knowledge of the modern civilization is available in English. If we avoid learning English, we will keep ourselves aloof from the civilized world. Our education will suffer most because almost all the books necessary for higher education are written in English. It is quite impossible to replace English with Bangla overnight.
It is unfortunate but true that English is being underestimated which is causing the degradation of its standard. As a result, the standard of education itself is coming down. It is high time we realized the importance of English and took necessary measures to upgrade its standard.
