Encourage children to learn the mother tongue alsoLanguage is the basic requirement for communication. We can communicate our feelings, thoughts and problems with others through a common language. Language is a feature that is given to human beings by God.
Mother tongue is the language that is being spoken in the family and the society around. It is also known as the native language. Olden days people used to travel less and they are able to manage their life with only one language that is their mother tongue. But these days moment around the world is more. Hence it has become a necessity to learn English which is treated as the universal language.
Some parents because of their love for the English language ignore their native language and in turn, their children are not able even to speak or understand their mother tongue. One should not ignore their mother tongue. A student who is fluent in a minimum of two languages may also develop more flexibility in their thinking. This may be due to the ability of the child two process the information through two different languages.
Keeping this in mind parents should always encourage their children to learn their mother tongue also in addition to English.
