Language is a social phenomenon and a child learning language, learns not just the rules of the linguistic structure but learns them with reference to the social context. So, in a multilingual set-up contextualized language instruction for young learners must follow the principle of child-centered pedagogy. Within which their views, voices and experiences are given primary consideration and also their active participation is encouraged. Teaching grammar and vocabulary (that is, giving examples from the home language of the learners) in isolation will not yield the desired result and learning will take place in a fragmented manner whereas, we need to have a holistic perspective on language learning (NCF 2005).

Key words : Bilingual, English Linguistic, monolingual and symmetrical study
