Where can I learn Hinglish

Hinglish and English have long existed in parallel worlds as mother tongues in India

Sir Simon Kuper claims in "Why Globish no longer cuts it" (Opening shot, January 13) that "India for the first time ever a new generation of urbanists has mother tongueEnglish is. You don't use them anymore hishlish Formulations like "Head is paining". "

"For the first time ever"? This claim is false and simple. The reality is nuanced.

I am 51 years old and in India grew up. English is my mother tongue - the only languagethat I have spoken at home and at school. (As surprising as it sounds, I had to go to school from scratch indianlanguage learn. English was that too mother tongue of my parents and grandparents. According to the 2001 census in India it was English the first language of 226,449 Indians, that is 0.02 percent of the population at the time. While this is a drop in the ocean, it has India always had a tiny urban minority, theirs mother tongueEnglish is. This is not a new development, but dates back to when India was still a British colony.

Hinglish is a hybrid used by people who don't have a English as mother tongue speak. In contrast to Mr Kuper, I am of the opinion that Hinglish is far more common today than it was when I was in India grew up. More people in India speak today English as second language as previously. The regional or local languagesthat their mother tongue are affecting the way they are English speak, hence the ubiquity of Hinglish and other variants.

English as mother tongue and Hinglish have long existed in parallel worlds in India and will continue to do so.
