India is a unique country with numerous languages that are divided into five language families: Indo-Aryan, Dravidian, Austro-Asiatic, Tibeto-Burman, and Andamanese. These languages not only share some sociolinguistic characteristics but also frequently interact with one another, resulting in a pan-Indian culture that is rich. "Classical languages such as Latin, Arabic, Persian, Tamil and Sanskrit are rich in their inflectional grammatical structure and aesthetic value, and can illuminate: our lives, as many languages keep borrowing words from them." To help school children experience diverse cultural values and to ensure the integration of diverse ethnic groups, NFC recommended a three-language formula which is as under: (1) Primary_-Classes 1-5 • 1 & 2-One language: the mother tongue/the regional language. 3-5 - the mother tongue/the regional language. (2) Upper primary_ _Classes 6-8 6-8. Three languages: the mother tongue/ the regional language, the modern Indian language and English. (3) Secondary Education • 9 & 10: Three languages: the mother tongue/the regional language, modern Indian language and English. NCF remarks, "higher-level proficiency skills easily transfer from one language to another. It is thus imperative that we do everything we can to strengthen the sustained learning of Indian languages at school."
