Mother Language in Higher Education

In class Grad 5104, one of the cases, that was a little strange for me, is the higher education of Lebanon.  The students from this country stated their official language in the universities of this country is not Arabic. It is French or English.

I do not agree with this type of education system. The mother language of each country should be considered as the official language for higher education. The language of each country is its identity. The students should know other languages, particularly English language. But, they do not need to consider a foreign language as their own language instead of their mother language. The lebanonian student said that he cannot understand mathematics in Arabic language.

The higher education in each country should respect to the culture and customs of that country as a pioneer. Therefore, I believe that the higher education in each country should use the mother language of its region.
