“I don’t know what they call ‘English’ now. I can understand the attractiveness of it. But I don’t hold the view that reading English is a soft option, or at least it shouldn’t be. It should be a severe option, restricted to those people who are qualified to do it. I’ve been out of touch with student life for a long time. But I don’t believe that many people nowadays get many visible benefits from studying English. It doesn’t do them any harm, of course.”
