In recent times, most institutions and organizations have rolled out activities to articulate and portray the Ghanaian Cultural Heritage as the country marks its Month of Independence.

Though many aspects of the cultural heritage have come under immense infiltration and adulteration, an aspect most people are concerned about is the situation where pupils and students are made to use their mother tongue for curriculum instruction instead of English, the official language.

Speaking to GBC News, a section of residents in Tema expressed mixed opinions on the issue.

According to some, students should be allowed to speak their local languages in school as it will help boost their confidence in class.

Others said allowing students to speak local dialects in school will have adverse effects on their articulation in English.

Listen to the attached audio for detailed information.
