National International Mother Language Day 2017

Reason to celebrate: February 21, 2017 is National International Mother Language Day.

International Mother Language Day

Introduced by UNESCO in 1999, International Mother Language Day remembers cultural diversity and remember the “language martyr” students of 1952 Bangladesh. These students are honored through the encouragement of multiculturalism and also the promotion of protective measures for endangered languages. It’s difficult to think of the challenges faced by students who've been purchased to understand inside a language, as without linguistic inclusion, there's no equal use of education. Current International Mother Language Day occasions include multicultural festivals which promote the hearing of voices, and display social cohesion, cultural awareness, and tolerance. The initial nuances and subtleties of linguistic communication which connect people to culture and private identity are valued and urged.Within the words of Nelson Mandela, “If you speak with a guy inside a language he knows, which goes to his mind. Should you speak with him in the language, which goes to his heart.”
