This is a question that intrigues me no end: is language an indicator of being cultured; is language a carrier of culture?
When considering foreign languages it is easier to see that language disseminates culture than when considering ones own culture.(at least by the Kenyan bourgeoisie. We want to believe that we are schooled in our indigenous cultures even when we tweng in our mother tongue.
speaking of which, is there a difference between mother tongue and first language?
Which is your indigenous culture?
Is it different from the ethnic community whence you hail?
Think on this and do post your thoughts on the class dojo/ let’s meet Wednesday 5 pm for our ZOOM experience as we brainstorm this.
