I REFER to the article, “A pass in English a must” (The Star, Sept 3).
The new policy making a pass in English Language compulsory for undergraduates in public universities must be welcomed by all.
There is no doubt that the practical use of the English Language in the world is so vast that it is correctly acclaimed as the universal language.
Those who are not proficient in English will certainly be at a great disadvantage in all walks of life.
Thus a proper study of the proficiency of English at all levels including schools and universities must be carried out soon.
