ABSTRACT
There are substantial numbers of problems in the management of English Language Teaching in a multilingual the social order like India. The British introduced English in India to ascertain a tie between rulers and us as the ones they ruled. It was indeed important for them to spread the reach of English Language among Indians. Thus they tailored definite policies to attain their goals. Have we been able to change the policies? No! The policies have a Macaulayan imprint even today. The successive governments in this country have adopted blinkered policies, taking one-step forward two steps back. Provisions were made for the administration of educational courses through the medium of L1. English was to continue to be used as a link language with the southern states of India in favour of English. There were language riots in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The country had to take decision to continue with English. However, this created problems with regard to the management of English Language Teaching. Such linguistic problems added to the difficulties teachers faced in the managing of English Language Teaching. Hence my paper aspires to understand the same in cross cultural set up we are in.
