Causes of Failure in English

Write a summary of the following passage (Max 5-6 sentences):

There are a good number of reasons why the students in Bangladesh fail in English. That English is a foreign language is the main reason. In other words, students do not have the right approach to English. Very few of them are earnest in learning English. What the students seek is to cross the barriers of examinations. To most of them, learning is unpleasant and examination is fearful. Secondly, teaching of a foreign language becomes very difficult when the learners are not keen on the subject. In that situation, a teacher of English can hardly find out a technique suitable to all. They fail to motivate the learners that they must master the four skills (reading, writing, speaking and listening) of language and that there is no easy way of learning a foreign language. In short, they fail to make language learning interesting. Moreover, text books for different classes are not suited to the stages and standard of the learners. Finally, the form of the question in the public examinations induces cramming rather than learning the language. The faulty nature of questions persuades the students to run after the so-called 'Touch and Pass' method. It is high time we did something to save the students from the disgrace of failure.
