Indians beat English at their own language
According to an analysis by Educational Testing Service TOEFL, students whose mother tongue is an Indian language fare better in the Test of English as a Foreign Language than those whose native language is English. TOEFL’s internet-based test was launched in September 2005-06 and since then, while Gujaratis have bettered their average mean score from 78 to 84, most others have slid down the charts. Those speaking Hindi registered 96 then, Kannadigas had scored 97 and Maharashtrians bagged 97.
