Krishna Prasad Subedi's curator insight, May 11, 2014 5:23 AM

Fear to speak in the target language in non-native speakers' classroom has been a long topic of debate among the educationist, teachers and planners alike. Most children in Nepalese context either feel humiliated before they make mistakes in their utterance. Others fear to share their thoughts due to lack of proper knowledge of target language. While a large group of students, in the school where I teach, do not want to hear the negative feed backs from their teachers. There is always one or other reasons, which may not work together in every students, for excuses to students when it comes to speaking in the targeted language.
