In every society, there is a dominant language that we unconsciously prefer, and for the majority of us, that language is English. In Pakistan, the official language of English is preferred over national and regional languages. Code-switching is the practice of switching from one language to another, and it is essentially an inevitable phenomenon, especially in the zone of multilinguals and bilinguals followed by language dominance. Since Pakistan's pedagogical learning and teaching methods have never been studied, additional research is required. Code switching gained importance in the 1990s when several studies on the subject were published. Since then, it has been crucial for most institutions to strike a balance between languages so that code switching may be advantageous for both learning and teaching systems. The paper aims to discuss the impact of high and low languages in Pakistan, with a focus on Hyderabad Sindh. The causes of code-switching and language dominance will be highlighted in the article through analysis of interviews with former National University of Modern Languages students.
