The 2005 editorial by Balaram1 throws much light on the poor English language ability of students of science. Although it is more than a decade now, there has not been any improvement and the situation seems to be as grave as before. Raman2 has expounded his experience on the dire need of sparing more than four hours of teaching basic English to students who registered for research under him. Most students of science and technology are under the misconception that English language learning is trivial and something that is unnecessary. It is considered petty, little forgetting that English is an international language which is widely spoken across the globe and used in all sectors. It is time pupils realize and understand the absolute significance of English in their lives and careers. Subbarao3 opined that students of science, even at the postdoctoral level, are unable to appreciate, let alone practice, the importance of correct English.
