Education and language are well connected and are inseparable components of each other. The former is not possible without the latter. Thus a careful decision regarding the medium of instruction in education with reference to the learners' development and learning competence is more crucial when it is being decided in country like India, which is totally diverse in nature. The medium of instruction makes the learning pattern simple or complex. The opinions of people in the country like India for the medium of instructions are confused. Generally people believe that the education given in second language is always hindering the learners' innate potentials but according to some educationists language is not a barrier in receiving education and students can easily learn different languages and use them for learning process. To ponder over this controversy and to evaluate the pros and cons of both views, the researchers conducted this research. Key words: Medium of Instruction, Students' Anxiety and Colleges of Education
