Abstract: The soul of India resides in the villages. Hindi is the medium of instruction in the rural schools and colleges of the Hindi-speaking states of the country. After getting primary and secondary education from villages in Hindi belt areas, students leave for higher education in cities where the world of English welcomes them. When the students of science class listen to the lectures of learned teachers in the classes, then probably within a few days they start getting disillusioned with the classes. Since most of the students come from Hindi medium education, when technical words are explained by the teachers in English, then the students become uncomfortable because they have not read the English words and they do not understand the Sanskrit-based words of Hindi. Then they search the meaning of English words through internet on mobile phone but they get disappointed. Through this research, it was concluded that if the technical words of Hindi are used by the teacher in the simplest possible form, then they are useful not only for Hindi speaking students but also for English medium students to understand the nuances of the subject. Proves to be helpful.
