The world is a place of diversity. Different cultures, various languages, and a different set of people are living in this world. Though we have a few common languages to communicate, many of us have a particular mother tongue, which we follow in our family. It is perfectly acceptable to learn as many foreign languages as to communicate well with people, but at the same time, understanding and praising our mother tongue is more important. It gives us the pride to learn and converse in our mother tongue
Importance of mother tongue
Understanding letters in mother tongue
As a family, converse in our mother tongue Tamil. My daughter is well versed in the language, and she knows as many words as she can. But we haven’t introduced the letters and words visually other than reading books. She picked up the interest in learning the letters and wants to do it daily. As she is in a sensitive period of learning, I want to encourage her more. So, we did some activities at home to learn the letters.We don’t have to force the child to learn anything but we can form a path for the child to explore.
