Punjab primary students will now be learning in Urdu


Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar announced on Saturday that the province will use Urdu as a medium of instruction in primary schools from March 2020.

English will only be taught as a second language in schools. He believes that since all the schools are English medium, students don’t learn Urdu well enough.

The Punjab CM took to Twitter and said that teachers’ and students’ time is wasted translating English chapters instead of comprehending because of which the students fail to learn anything new.

Buzdar also remarked that a survey – with the help of teachers, parents, and students – was conducted in 22 districts of Punjab, and over 85% answers in every category favored Urdu instead of English as a medium of instruction. For more latest news Pakistan, visit 9newshd.tv
