In a country where most people speak English, the Indian language is growing in popularity and importance, especially among younger generations.
The government is now trying to bridge the gap.
On Sunday, the Department of Education, Science, and Technology (DoES), which is responsible for education in India, announced that it will set up an “Indias First” website that will allow Indian-speaking students to access English-language courses in India.
The site will also feature more than 5,000 courses, with more than 10,000 in English and some in Hindi.
But while the site will be a success for the students, there are some concerns that the language could become a barrier to learning more in India and the country.
There are a number of issues to consider, including the fact that the number of people with no formal education in English is more than 1.6 billion, making it one of the world’s largest languages, according to the Oxford English Dictionary.
The U.S. government is one of India’s largest English-speaking nations.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization estimates that there are more than one million Indian speakers in the world.
Many Indian-language websites in the United States also serve as websites for Indian students who cannot afford an English-only college.
Indian-language classes can be costly.
For example, in the year 2016-17, Indian-American students enrolled in online Indian-English courses cost an average of $5,800, according a 2016 report by the National Association of College and University Admissions Officers.
And the government is still trying to pay for the majority of those students.
