All teachers need to be proficient in English because it is the language of instruction in Fiji, says University of Fiji Acting Vice Chancellor Professor Narendra Reddy.

Professor Reddy was addressing participants at the Fiji Principals Association 122nd Conference in Lautoka on Thursday.

Professor Reddy urged everyone that competition should be on the international level rather than just being on the national level.

“Our workers need to compete in the global market where English is accepted as the global language,” he said.

Professor Reddy said that a high level of priority should be given to the language in the different communities around Fiji as well.

“We should emphasise language teaching from the beginning of education,” he said.
