Som Mittal, president of NASSCOM,  speaks at the Third Polcy Dialogue as part of the first panel discussion – English Next India: Policy implications for English teaching and learning.

Som believes using the labels 1st, 2nd and 3rd language is wrong and wonders why we can’t just use the term ‘languages ‘ like we  do with other subjects, such as sciences. Should equal importance be given to L1, L2 and L3? What do you think?

The panel discussion is getting lively. Watch it live or recorded online!
