If he grows up with one language for the school-room he may well develop a kind of dual personality, one side of which is being developed by the ideas which he encounters and the training he receives in school - is sealed off in a kind polythene bag from the side which makes the everyday social, cultural and moral decisions. In such a situation very often the child whom would respond creatively to his own saturation does not do so well at school as the clever parrot. Education through the medium of foreign languages may encourage a kind of opportunism which is not prepared to give back an unselfish service to the community. Teachers in all the English medium universities and colleges which have been started or developed in the newly independent parts of the British Commonwealth have had to contend with their problem, and from the main force of the argument for education in the vernacular derives.The position of this extract is ________
