It is impossible to get the students to reach a near-native level of English without sacrificing most of their education in their own language. This is not desirable, as it would impact the students ability to speak about academic topics in the local language, and in the long run it would threaten the very existence of the native language, at least as a language of culture.
The world's cultural diversity is a precious thing and it must be maintained.
I think English should be the main languge and one other language should be taught simultaneously. English has been the main language I do not know why this need to be changed.
