Noam Chomsky Interviewed by Pervez Hoodbhoy on Language

Should we teach in the mother tongue? Are all languages equally capable? Pervez Hoodbhoy in conversation with the world’s most famous linguist. 


  1. i dont think language is our problem at all. teach in any language u like ..the actual change is needed in the mindset . to progress we need to induce rational thinking and evidence based reasoning in our culture. our language represents our culture . and it lacks these things. introduce rationality into the culture and i think thers no reason we cant fill our literature with real science and knowledge in no time.
    on the other hand even if our children use english as a primary medium , and the culture stays the same . there will be no significant difference . english speaking idiot is no different than urdu speaking idiot .
