In Sri Lanka there are around 600 bilingual schools. All children study English as a subject from 1st grade but in bilingual schools children can opt to study 3 or 4 subjects in the medium of English from grade 5 onwards. The number of bilingual schools is set to double by 2011. What’s the situation in India?
