Now, on the hindsight, I wish I could be more receptive to learn English well when I was young. I was not good at it, neither English was taught well in our school. It was a power language to me, as I grew up in India. But the reality is that, even for teaching my mother tongue, Bangla/Bengali, I need to have some knowledge of the learner's language. There is no doubt about it.
