“English and မြန်မာစာ* in Myanmar: a match made in heaven or an unhappy marriage?”
(* ‘Burmese language’ in Burmese)
The Burmese language has a proud history of regenerating itself to adapt to changing times, but in the late 20th and now in the 21st century, English seems to have blocked the progress of the Myanmar language. What is the status of English in Myanmar and why? What support does Burmese need to help reduce the dependence on English in the 21st century?
