Is English a new Esperanto ? (Charles Durand)

Last Updated: 1 Jan 2013

When I learnt that her university uses English as the main teaching medium even though both professors and students native language is Malay, I contended that the English language thwarts or even contradicts, at least partially, the objectives set by those who created such a educational system. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
