The UK government has said that Indian languages will continue to be the part of their education system, and these languages will continue to be taught across the country.
These languages are Urdu, Punjabi, Gujarati and Bengali. The UK authorities have given a green signal for the continuation of these languages in their curriculum.
Process of continuation is as follows:
- The authorities concerned have affirmed that the four languages-- Punjabi, Urdu, Gujarati and Bengali, will be a part of the curriculum in the schools that are affiliated by the GCSE syllabus, similar to Indian central board.
- The government has signed an agreement that "the community language qualifications will continue to be provided under these subjects"
- It is not that only Indian languages are added up in the UK education system. There are several other languages which are being included in the education system like Arabic, Modern Greek, Japanese, Modern and Biblical Hebrew, Polish, Portuguese and Turkish that will continue to be a part of school curriculum in the UK.
As per the reports stated Bob Blackman said,
"· "I represent one of the most multicultural constituencies in the country so I can attest that we are more part of a global village now than we have ever been."
"· "Our young people have far more opportunities available to them if they are able to be multilingual and that is why I have argued for language studies to be prioritized and protected in our educational system, "Blackman said.
"· "I congratulate everyone who worked to keep this important issue on the agenda and I am pleased that in Nicky Morgan (UK education minister) we have an Education Secretary willing to listen to the needs of people on a practical level," Bob said.
