In those days, English was seen as a language that would expose girls to new ideas, which people thought were not correct for them. Therefore, it was mostly boys who were taught English. However, Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain wished to learn these two languages in addition to Urdu. Fortunately, she got the support of her elder brother and an elder sister and ultimately learnt to read and write Bangla and English.

Rokheya Sukhawat Hussain was stopped from learning Bangla and English. This was because at that time English was seen as a language which would expose girls to new ideas, which people thought were not correct for them.

But she managed to learn these languages with the help of her elder brother and an elder sister and went on to become a writer. She wrote a remarkable story titled Sultana's dream in 1905 to practice her English skills.

I hope that this answer will help you.smileysmileysmiley
