Summary: During an education conference, someone asks Sadhguru - "What is your opinion of teaching in native language vs teaching in English?". Sadhguru says, that in India there are 25 - 30 languages with a script of their own. And many of them have a huge volume of literature. It takes a long time for a language to develop, and language is a very significant part of human intelligence. English has benefits in terms of simplicity and ease of use of modern technology - so learning English language is a must. But we must ensure that we preserve the native Indian languages. One significant aspect of Indian languages is that they have a very wide phonetic range - and it stimulates certain aspects within the system. So, children must learn at least one native language, in addition to English.
