Improvising Education: Empowering Education through Multilingualism
India is a land of cultural and linguistic diversity. Over the past few years the world has witnessed many changes in the field of education. Amongst them is the increasing trend of learning a third or fourth language preferably a foreign language. The number of multilinguals is more than monolinguals in the world. Today many schools in India have started teaching a foreign language. Today’s youth wants to have an edge over others. Multilingualism opens up a plethora of opportunities. In an increasingly global society the ability to speak and write in multiple languages is now becoming necessary to effectively compete in the job market. The trend of speaking more languages is becoming frequent. This paper attempts to showcase the importance and role of multilingualism in a globalized society along with the present challenges and prospects. When and how a new language can be introduced is also a big question. Multilingualism is the need of the hour and will strengthen the cultural diversity between nations and will help in preserving the cultural heritage of the world.
