Student Failure In English

Report on Student Failure In English
Izaz Bin Azam, The Daily Star, Dhaka, 29 November 2016: Why a huge number of students fail in English is really a matter of great concern. English is compulsory subject at all levels of our education. Yet many fail in the public examinations. Certainly there are many causes of students’ failure in English in our country.
Most of the students of our country are not interested in learning English. They just want to pass the examinations. So they only memorize some answers and hope to get them common in the exams. This method does not help them pass the examinations. So they only memorize some answers and hope to get them common in the exam. This method dose not help them the exam. Next, many students consider English a problem and they even do not try to overcome this problem. They cannot remove the fear of English and they fail in the exam. Again, we have not been able to invent the right approach to learning English for our students. Moreover, the text books are not devised and designed or written well. The texts are not suitable for our students and do not facilitate proper learning. Also our teachers are not trained enough to set questions properly. The present pattern of questions discourages our students to learn English. Rather they memorize the answers.
Now, it is time to think deeply about this problem. For this we have to design our syllabus suitably. We have to find out an appropriate way of learning English which will help our students learn English and overcome the disgrace of failure in English
