    Mr Minister First and foremost English should be made compulsory like Sinhala and Tamil are being compulsory at present in every national schools with English grammar as a subject at least at Advanced level examination by mitigating the heavy tedious syllabus of other subjects. 98 % of the Sinhala Tamil medium students ignore English learning and as a result ,majority of the lecturers are very poor or with zero knowledge of English.
