PM against mispronunciation of Bangla
"Growing practice of Bangla language is very encouraging as errors are corrected through practices. But, we have to remain careful about the correct practice of the language," BSS quoted her saying at the inauguration ceremony a five-day programme orgainsed by International Mother Language Institute (IMLI) marking the International Mother Language Day-2017 in its auditorium here on Tuesday. "Youths must refrain from the habit of misspelling and mispronunciation of the Bangla language. So, they should be more careful while using, spelling and pronouncing Bangla words," she said adding that regional dialects should not be ignored as they also have distinctiveness. Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid presided over the function while adviser of Unesco on language issue Anvita Abbi presented the keynote paper on the theme of the day titled "Towards Sustainable Futures through Multilingual Education". Unesco representative in Dhaka Beatrice Kaldun, Education Secretary Sohrab Hossain and Director General of Institute Dr Jinat Imtiaz Ali spoke, among others, on the occasion.

Bangla speaking people would be able to open web address in Bangla alphabet and use internet in Bangla very soon, she said adding that an apps has also been produced from where people can learn nine languages. Clearing her position in favour of learning foreign languages, the prime minister said: "We are not against the learning of foreign languages. If anybody has the ability, he/she should learn more languages. However, everybody should learn the mother language first. Knowledge in other languages would be the additional quality of an individual." The Prime Minister thanked Unesco for upgrading the IMLI as a second category organization hoping that one day the institute would grow up as an international organization with distinct entity.
