In Russia, English has become the working language. It's the corporate language for Germany. Brazil is going to teach English to its students from class I starting next year. The way wealth is created is different after globalisation. Even in mid-1990s, Belgians were teaching English to Chinese so that they could communicate with German and Italian engineers installing machines in their steel factories. In India, not many know the changes that have happened outside. India used to think 'we speak English, so we have an advantage'. You don't get special advantage if everyone speaks English. Twenty years ago you had this special advantage. China is teaching English to a much wider demographic whereas in India, it continues to be to a fairly elite group.

'Majority of Indian students don't have good enough English'
