Abstract

This paper is a brief analysis of English language learning and teaching practice in Bangladesh. It shows the history of English language introduction in the country by the British rulers as a part of Indian subcontinent and then presents a gradual discussion about the evolution of the language practice with all its highs and lows since the inception to the present situation. Prominent language teaching methodologies have eventually emerged as a part of discussion but the paper does not opine for any specific method to be the most suited but within a very limited scope, a picture of the prevailing language reality has been surfaced in the study. This is just a neutral analysis, a critical approach drawn from the related resources. The paper intends to draw the attention of the policymakers to provide an impetus to the thought of delivering the learners and the teachers a teaching learning practice which serves best for the nation.

Keywords: English, history, inception, present practice, Grammar Translation Method, Communicative Language Teaching.
